Welcome to the CKMS Counseling Department!

Middle School is an exciting adventure, and your counseling department is here to help! During your time at CKMS, you'll be met with increasingly challenging academic standards. You will also be busy exploring and forming your own individual and social identity; growing into the teenage you! Your counselor is here to support this growth in your academic, social, and emotional life. We believe that every student comes with incredible strengths, and that it is our job to help identify those gifts, nourish them, and help students use what they have to meet life's hurdles. 

Every week, your counseling department puts out Dinner Table Topics both via our blog and the emailed Friday Messenger. Parents, sick of getting one word answers to "how was your day"? We encourage families to take a look at our dinner table topics and start some conversations based on interesting things going on at CKMS! 

Students can also use this website to Request an Appointment with your counselor. Parents, feel free to call or email for appointment.
