This year there are many exciting programs and activities that are coordinated through the middle school counseling office. Listed below are the activities, tests and programs for grades 6-8. 

During the school year, students are encouraged to participate in activities both in and out of the classroom.  Here are some of the programs that I can help facilitate for your child. 

Watchdogs and Watchpups Program:  A program that pairs a high school student with a middle school or elementary aged child.  The Watchdog is a screened and recommended high school student that develops a trusting and safe friendship with a younger aged student.  Homework help, listening, playing games, and being an encouraging and supportive person is the strength of this program.  They meet one time per week during the school day.  

Circle of Friends:  Pairing middle school aged peers together for friendship support and getting to know other students while in middle school.  We meet one time per nine weeks. 

Students With Honors:  Academic and Character recognition.  Students that meet the academic criteria have the oppportunity to apply to this program.  Teacher selection is based upon the qualities of character that the student exhibited the previous school year. Students that are selected will be given the opportunity to work all of the MS home concession stands.  

Student Social/Emotional Small Groups:  Grief, Divorce/Separation, Anxiety, Friendship, and Academic Improvement are some areas of focus.



Students will take the NWEA measures of academic progress in the areas of reading, language usage, mathematics, and science in the fall and spring.  Scores will be analyzed by the teaching staff to develop guided lessons, interventions and goals for students.  Individual student reports will be available to parents during parent teacher conferences. 


Meet LaCrosse! Our 3 year old facility Dog from KSDS

LaCrosse is a 3 year old Golden Retriever.  LaCrosse and Mrs. Houser waited patiently for three years until they were matched by the Kansas Assistance Dogs program.  LaCrosse is a certified Facility Dog that works with students and staff everyday.  He loves kids and staff and has been a wonderful addition to the Douglass schools.
