Parents and students,My name is Katelyn Barnes and I am so excited to serve as the School Counselor for this upcoming school year! For the past three years, I have worked at Junior's House, where I have had the privilege of counseling and interviewing children who have experienced many forms of trauma. I have seen first-hand the resiliency, determination and creativity of children, and I am excited to meet and work with the students of FMS. I will be working with individual students, as well as leading large guidance classes and small group activities. I would love to be a help if you are ever in need, parents and child alike! Do not hesitate to ask, as I want to be a source for information, assistance and advocacy to all the children and families who attend Fayetteville Middle School.Thank you,Katelyn Barnes
In January and February, I will be meeting with the students during their library time for large group guidance lessons. These lessons will focus on social inclusion and how to reach out and help those who may be isolated. The Notice club will also be helping with this series of lessons.
