    Welcome to the NMS Counseling Department!


    2020-2021 Family Welcome Letter:
    Dear Nichols Middle School Families, 

    WELCOME BACK! We are so excited to be back at Nichols Middle School after a relaxing and slightly different feeling Summer. We are the NMS Counseling Department and we are thrilled to work side by side to support our students and families throughout the Nichols Middle School Community. 

    I am Mrs. Lacey Foley and I am the School Adjustment Counselor for Cohort 3! I will be supporting students and providing social/emotional support to 6th Grade Challengers, 7th Grade Explorers and 8th Grade Apollo’s. I will be helping support students in the building on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and assisting with academic help, high school applications and in the moment support. This is my second year at Nichols Middle School and I am excited that we get to be back in person and online and to continue to support our Tiger Community. 

    I am Ms. Megan Moriarty and I am the School Counselor for Cohort 2! Although I work primarily with 6th Grade Adventurers, 7th Grade Beacons and 8th Grade Comets, I am in the building five days per week and am always available to meet with students. I will be supporting them and providing them with social/emotional support, academic help, and high school applications. This is also my second year at Nichols Middle School and I could not be happier to be back with students. 

    I am Mr. Thomas Brandon and I am the School Adjustment Counselor for both Cohort 2 and Cohort 3. I have been at Nichols Middle School for 10 years. This year will certainly look different but I am excited to continue to meet with students across all grade levels and cohorts and continue the social emotional support in individual and group settings. 

    Our hope as the Counseling Department is that this school year will be full of fun opportunities and successful experiences for all students. Our vision is to make sure all students feel supported in and out of the classroom. We continue to plan to run our social/emotional groups both online and in person and meet with students and parents individually to offer daily support. There is a lot of uncertainty in the world right now and our goal is to make sure all our students have a safe space to go when they need someone to talk to. 

    We have created the Counselor Request Form which allows students to discreetly request an in-person or online meeting with their designated counselor. This form is available to every student with a Middleboro Public Schools log-in and can be accessed on our website. 

    If you have questions or concerns regarding your student or would like to discuss any social/emotional supports with us, please do so via the contact information to your left. 

    We look forward to working with your students in and out of the classroom and online!
