Rebel Round Up

What’s happening this fall in the Counseling Department at MCC High School? 

This year we are forming a School Counseling Advisory Council.  This will be made up of students, staff, school board, parents, and community/business representatives.  We will meet three times a year:  fall, winter, spring.  The meetings will take place in the Counseling Center at MCC High School.  The purpose of the Council is:

  •  To provide a platform through which we can collaborate on how to best serve our students
  • To identify student and community needs
  • To make recommendations regarding the school counseling department’s response to those needs
  • To advocate for and support the school counseling program

Forming this council is in accordance with the American School Counselors Association “National Model for School Counseling”.  If any parents or business/community members are interested in being a part of this, contact me by email:
