LMS Counseling
The Lee Middle School Counseling Program is comprehensive and developmental in nature. It is designed to be an integral part of the school's overall educational plan and it is designed to serve all Lee students at various levels. Our counseling program emphasizes personal growth with an overall direction toward helping students learn more effectively. Our counselors work with students, teachers, parents, administrators and community resources to meet the needs of our students, individually and collectively.

The Lee Counseling Department may work with students for the following reasons:

students requesting to see the counselor
students with learning difficulties
students having difficulty with relationships
students demonstrating observable changes in behavior that cannot be accounted for by the teacher
students who are constantly late or absent from school or struggling with their work
students who are fearful or nervous
students who seem to seek only negative attention
students who exhibit excessive aggressive behavior
students who have experienced a death in the family or the death of a close friend
students experiencing divorce or separation in the family
students entering a new or special learning class
parents requesting that a son or daughter receive support from a counselor.
The following situations make it necessary for an immediate referral to the counselors:

suspected or reported child abuse or neglect, physical or mental abuse
a student cries or gets sick daily
a student becomes unable to function in normal ways
a behavior change in a student that is unusual or sudden
a student undergoing a traumatic family situation
actions that indicate mounting hostility between a student and a teacher or his/her peer group.
Lee Middle School counselors also work hard to help schedule and attend team conferences, support and oversee the Student Support Team (SST) process, develop and implement classroom guidance lessons, supervise students, sponsor clubs and activities and coordinate our testing program.
