Mrs. Sandy Troyer, OMS Guidance Counselor
PHILOSOPHY OF THE GUIDANCE DEPARTMENT
The main emphasis of any school, of course, is on academics. However, things you see as problems, whether they are related to home or school, will from time to time, bother each of you throughout the school year. These problems have a way of upsetting us and making it difficult to study or gain peace of mind. The purpose of the Guidance Program at Orrville Middle School is to provide the opportunity for students to discuss their feelings through problem-solving techniques, such as one-on-on counseling and group interaction.
APPOINTMENT WITH THE GUIDANCE COUNSELOR
Appointments with the guidance counselor can be made ‘by talking directly to him/her or through contact with a friend, teacher or the principal. All appointments should be made before or after school, during a study hall, or during lunch. Class time should not be used unless it is an extreme emergency.
