Counseling

Welcome to the CKMS Counseling Department!


CLOSURE UPDATED MESSAGE:
Hello CKMS Families! We can't wait to find out the specifics of what next year will look like so we can plan how best to support our students. We know these have been stressful times and we look forward to working with students, staff, and families to meet all these new unique needs. Please enjoy the sunshine this summer. We look forward to seeing you in the Fall!

  
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.
