School Counseling

  • Every school provides guidance and counseling services to all students. Read 324P - School Guidance and Counseling Programs.


    The data-driven comprehensive school counseling program at Frederick County Middle School will facilitate students' success in the three domains of academic, personal/social and career development. The counselor's role will be to facilitate a collaborative effort between home, school and community. The counseling program will be developmental in nature, while encompassing individual differences and abilities, with an ultimate goal of fostering responsible and productive citizens.

    6th Grade
    Happy March, everyone! The end of the school year is approaching sooner than we think. I personally am excited for warmer weather. The end of marking period 3 will be Thursday March 16. Please have your scholar reach out to their teachers for extra support should they need it. Our 6th grade scholars will soon be 7th grade scholars. If your scholar has not had the opportunity to choose their electives for 7th grade, please have your scholar reach out to me, and I will make sure they select their electives. As always, if you have any concerns, please feel free to reach out.

    7th grade
    Our school year continues to move along and March will be a busy month here for seventh grade scholars at FCMS.  Please be looking out for the field trip form for the bowling trip to Northside Lanes occurring on Wednesday, March 15. The forms must be returned with the $10.00 payment prior to Monday, March 13.  Also, the end of marking period 3 will be Thursday, March 16. Report cards will be issued on Wednesday, March 29.

    And just like that - it’s MARCH! Time is just flying this school year!

Her email address is: or call 540-667-5226.
