Classroom lessons taught by the school counselors are presented to all students at Hedgesville Middle School. The lessons cover academic, career, and personal/social content, and will take place throughout the year in various classroom settings. They are based on the West Virginia Counseling Program Model which is taken from the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Standards. Some of the classroom lessons this year will include an introduction to the counseling department, coping skills, manners, career exploration, college exploration, and organization.
