MS Guidance & Social Work Services
 
Counseling
From time to time, students and families encounter challenges that can make it difficult for the student to be successful in the school environment.  The school social worker is there to help students and parents through these difficult times. In the middle school, individual counseling is used on both a short and long-term basis to help students find success socially, emotionally and behaviorally in the classroom and school environment.

Referrals
The school social worker serves as the link between school, home and community.  If you have a need or concern, please contact your school social worker to discuss the problem and learn about community services available to help.

Olweus
Chenango Valley CSD utilizes the Olweus Bullying Prevention program.  The program has four anti-bullying rules we subscribe to:
  1. We will not bully others.
  2. We will try to help students who are bullied.
  3. We will try to include students who are left out.
  4. If we know that somebody is being bullied, we will tell an adult at school and an adult at home.

In the Middle School, students participate in bi-weekly classroom meetings, in groups of 10-12 students.  The meetings are facilitated by a teacher, and each group follows the same activities, which include building specific skills to handle bullying, empowering students to become defenders of the victim, character education and discussions of ways to make CVMS a better place.

For more information on Olweus, including resources for parents, visit our Olweus and DASA pages.
 
Wellness Day
Each year (usually the last day before winter break) Middle School students participate in a day-long event focused on health and wellness.  This day offers students an opportunity to learn about different aspects of wellness that are not traditionally taught in the classroom.  In the past, Wellness Day sessions have included yoga, body image, relationships, self-defense, choices and consequences from a legal aspect, cybersafety, environmental wellness, mindfullness and drug and alcohol awareness and education.
