Classroom Guidance Lessons:

Classroom Guidance is a developmental program of classes designed to foster students’ academic, career, and personal/social development. Classes are preventative in nature and empower students with self-knowledge, coping strategies, and life skills that will assist them in becoming problem solvers, collaborative workers, and responsible citizens.

Common Classroom Guidance Topics:

Decision Making
Internet Safety
Academic/Career Planning
Specialty Center Information

School Wide Programs:

At Bailey Bridge Middle School we have many school wide programs to reinforce the importance of academics and our ROAR Expectations, Respect, Organization, Appropriate Behavior and Responsibility.

These include but are not limited to:

Bear Bucks
Den Time Lessons
College and Career Month
Core Values Breakfast
Student of the Month

Individual Counseling:

Individual Counseling at Bailey Bridge is a one-to-one meeting with the counselor to discuss a problem or topic of interest that may be affecting their academic or social success. Friendship issues, worries, conflict resolution, difficulty coming to school, grief, and anger management are frequent issues facing middle school students.

During each one-on-one session, students might:

talk about issues that are important to them
role play various scenarios
work on a plan to reach a goal
use the counseling office as a safe place to decompress
play games to learn ways to relate to others
Referrals for students to meet with a school counselor can be made by classroom teachers, principals, parents, or through the students. Forms to see the counselor can be obtained from the teacher or outside of the counselor’s office. Parents are welcome to call or e-mail the counselor to request individual counseling for their child. Students may see a counselor at any time. However, for an extended time, parental permission must be granted for multiple sustained sessions.

Group Counseling:

Small group counseling (typically 6-12 participants) is needs-based and is usually accomplished when there is less disruption to the learning environment. Small groups provide students the opportunity to share ideas and learn from each other.
