Counseling
 
The Counselor’s Goal
The counselors of PLMS want each student to have a successful school experience. While school work is the primary focus, students also need to be able to relate well with peers and adults.  Counselors make themselves available to students on both an individual and group basis. We also work with teachers, parents, and outside agencies for the good of the students.
 
Making Appointments
  • PLMS counselors are available on a regular basis from 7:00 a.m. to 2:55 p.m.
  • Students should make appointments before school, during lunch break, or after school
  • Students may also use the four minute passing period to make appointments, but this could cause the student to be tardy and such a tardy would be unexcused
  • Students should choose a class in which they can make up missed work to schedule appointments
  • Each teacher has the final decision to excuse the student
 
The following services are provided by PLMS Guidance Department:
 
Individual Counseling
  • Appointments may be made by the student and/or counselor to discuss anything of importance to the student
  • School related problems with class work, how to study or set up work study schedules 
  • Getting along with other students, teachers, parents, and brothers or sisters
  •  Schedule planning for the next year of school
 
Group Counseling
  • The counselors provide students the opportunity to join in groups of six to eight students to discuss a variety of topics
