Mauldin Middle School Counselors are celebrating National School Counseling week February 6-10, 2017 by helping others. We will be collecting items for Greer Ministries and The Humane Society. Greer Ministries help the Upstate Area serve meals to the less fortunate and the elderly. The Humane Society supports our fur friends year round by providing shelter and putting animals up for adoption. Click here for a full list of donations items.

We love helping others so much that we will have a little “SHOW YOUR COUNSELOR” some love competition. Every item that you bring in, your grade level Counselor will receive a point and receive bragging rights. Watch the bulletin board and cheer on your favorite counselor!

Also, on February 10th, we are asking all students to honor our school counselors by sending them notes of appreciation for the help they provide throughout the school year. Boxes for these notes will be set up in the front office for Ms. Armstrong, Ms. Brown, and Mrs. Sponaugle.
