    Hi NMS Students! 

    Whether you are brand new to our building or are returning Tigers, WELCOME to the 2021-2022 school year! We are so excited to be back to fully in-person learning and are ready to help make this your best year yet.

    Our most exciting news this year is that we have added a member to our staff! Ms. Florio is our new School Psychologist. She is available for student appointments and is super excited to get to know all of you. You will see her on hall and lunch duties so be sure to say hi! Her office is located in the counseling suite next to Ms. Mo.

    Second, the counseling caseloads have changed a bit. Each team has an assigned counselor. Here is the breakdown:

    GRADE 6:

    Challengers (B): Foley

    Adventurers (C): Moriarty

    GRADE 7:

    Beacons (A): Foley

    Navigators (B): Moriarty

    Explorers (C ): Foley

    Grade 8:

    Apollos (A): Moriarty

    Comets (B): Foley

    Stargazers (C ): Moriarty

    In addition to these two and Ms. Florio, don’t forget about Mr. Brandon and Ms. Babul! Mr. Brandon is a School Adjustment Counselor available to any student. He helps out with all teams. Ms. Babul is a Social/Emotional Clinician that works primarily with the Summit program, but is available to help out with all students too.

    Next week, we will be coming around during homeroom and extension block to remind you about the Counselor Appointment Request form. We are busy preparing for this school year, so we will open the form next week; however, when you would like to see any one of us, you need to fill out the Counselor Appointment Request form each and every time! We strongly recommend that you bookmark this form on your device! No one will be allowed to drop into the counseling suite without permission, nor will we be able to accept phone calls from teachers asking us to see you. If it is an emergency, please find the nearest adult and ask them for help. Here is the link: https://forms.gle/wqwxwMhFxN9QF4QS7

    This year, we are also happy to introduce our new Bullying Report Form. This form is a way for students to report if they witness an incident of repeated bullying, or they feel they have been a victim of a bullying incident. This form is a discreet way to ensure Nichols Middle School is assisting all students with any issues! We will be showing you this form when we stop by each homeroom.

    Finally, be sure to visit our department website – we have lots of helpful tips and handouts on there if you are looking for resources! https://www.middleboro.k12.ma.us/Page/5867 

    No matter how you’re feeling, always remember that you are not alone! Whether you need to vent your frustrations, connect with resources, or learn coping skills and tricks to navigate middle school, we are here to help.

    Have a great long weekend!
