We are so happy to announce a new program that will be at Warren County Middle School this year. We are fortunate to have a licensed therapist from Cheer Mental Health/Volunteer Behavioral Services housed at Warren County Middle School who can perform formal therapy in a private office, with parent permission. This will greatly reduce the need for students to miss academic time for therapy appointments and hopefully improve school attendance, as well as reducing the time constraint for parents. If this is a service you feel could benefit your child, you will need to contact the School Counseling Office (Becky Partin or Kristi Slatton) at 473-6557 extension 75224, to set up a referral for your child. The school counselor will then share that information with Cheer Mental Health/Volunteer Behavioral Services who will contact you to set up an intake appointment. 

Attendance challenge! Students at school every day, all day, on time, no sign outs or tardies will have their names entered into a drawing for a gift card! There will be one winner per grade level for each 9 weeks. 

AFTER SCHOOL MUSIC: will be on Tuesday & Thursday afternoons from 3-4:30

We are collecting BOXTOPS for PE equipment. BRING IN YOUR BOXTOPS TO HOMEBASE OR THE MAIN OFFICE!!
