Welcome to the Whiteaker Counseling Program Website! 

Happy Second Semester. Lots of awesome stuff happening around here at this time. This time to remind you all to make sure your students are taking advantage of our After-school Classroom Study Halls, or our Wolverine Den, located in the Library. The schedule for these great opportunities are under the Parent & Student Resource Tab (look to your left). Please also make sure that both students and parents know how to log into StudentVue/ParentVue. Please call the main office or Registrar for assistance logging in. Another great resource offered to all students at Whiteaker Middle School, is the Student Planner. All students received a new one at the start of Semester 2 and it will last them through the rest of the school year. Please click here.

As a Guidance Office Staff we work very hard to accommodate the academic needs of each student, along with the requests from each student made during forecasting last spring. At this time, we will not be addressing any schedule changes. If students would like to address concerns or have questions about their Semester 2 schedule, students need to come to the Guidance within the first three days of grading period, and complete a counselor request form. 

Great Kindness Challenge is coming, Monday February 6th through the 10th. Get out those checklists and remember to dress up to show your Kindness Spirit. This year Mr.Curran and I myself have reached out to local business for advertising and donations. Yes, there will be prizes for students "Caught you Being Kind." ALSO we are doing a coin fundraiser for local non-profit, Assistance League of Salem-Keizer. Last but not least, we have an all school assembly, with a few special guest speakers on Monday, February 13th to celebrate ALL the Kind Acts.
