Guidance Information

At PRMS, we believe...

  • The counseling department should serve all students, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, religion, or ability
  • Effective school counseling programs should build relationships with teachers, families, and community members to provide comprehensive, high-quality services to students
  • Students have the right to a safe, supportive, and respectful learning environment
  • The guidance department works in coordination with teachers, staff, families, and community members to provide the students at PRMS with the tools necessary to become active participants in their education, lifelong learners, and responsible citizens

 

Our Services

  • Guidance Curriculum (classroom lessons)

What's a digital footprint?

Nowadays, students use technology and social media as part of their everyday lives.  In the first seventh-grade lesson, we discussed with students the impact -- both positive and negative -- that this can have on their futures.  Students learned that everything they do online becomes part of their digital footprint.
