Pearl River Middle School Guidance Office

As each student enters 5th grade, they are assigned a School Counselor based on their last name. This School Counselor is assigned to the student for all of their time in Middle School. The mission of Pearl River Middle School's school counseling program is to provide guidance, counseling and support for each student as he/she grows into a self-directed, responsible and contributing citizen, productive worker and lifelong learner. School counselors collaborate with teachers, administrators, related service providers, students, and parents/guardians to effectively monitor and support academics, attendance, safety, personal/social-emotional health and parent involvement.

School Counselors help each student:

- learn the process of decision making

- develop skills in interpersonal relationships

- work toward self-understanding and self-acceptance

- understand and respect individual differences in others

- use resources, including emerging technologies in a responsible, ethical manner

- be a reflective, purposeful, and responsible learner

- develop a life plan

    Profile of a Graduate Attribute Survey

    Over the course of the past few years, the district has been focused on integrating the 4C’s – communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creative problem solving, in both instruction and district practices.  This past year, faculty groups have had the opportunity to discuss how these attributes and others will shape the profile of both current and future graduates.  The link below, will direct you to a survey that highlights a few of the attributes that have been prevalent in these discussions.  Please click on the link and take a few minutes to rate the importance of each.  Your input is important as we, as a district, continue to craft and refine the Profile of a Pearl River Graduate. I look forward to learning more about your ideas as we continue to build on this important work. 

    Thank you,

    Marco Pochintesta
