Welcome to the Winters Mill School Counseling Office!
New way to schedule appointments with your counselor!
Our school counselors are using a new program that allows students and families to schedule their own meetings. We will continue to meet virtually, so please make sure that you are making your meetings on your NON-COHORT day. Each school counselor’s Microsoft Bookings page is linked below:
Mrs. Cavey (A-C) Mrs. Cavey's Appointments
Ms. Kempf (D-J) Ms. Kempf's Appointments
Mrs. Hannon (K-Q) Mrs. Hannon's Appointments
Mrs. Sentz (R-Z) Mrs. Sentz's Appointments
Students should still use the Google Schedule Correction Form if they would like to change CURRENT schedules before they make a Schedule Correction appointment. This form is in the counseling classrooms and under FORMS.
Virtual Scheduling Process
Counselors met with current ninth, tenth, eleventh grade 11/18 during Advisory to explain the Scheduling Process for the 2021-2022 school year. All information can be found on the Scheduling Page. The Google Scheduling Forms are found on the Scheduling Page in the Course Selection By Grade Tab at the top. Please check this page frequently as it will contain updated information. These forms are due on November 25th. Guardians will receive a copy of the student's Educational Career Plan in February. As always, your student's counselor is here to help them through this process. Please utilize the links above to schedule a meeting if necessary.
