Student Services

  • Welcome to Student Services! 

    In the middle school we have two school counselors who are assigned by alphabet.   

    Mrs. Winnicki works with students whose last names begin with A-L.  Mrs. Winnicki is available Monday - Friday from 8:00 am - 3:30 pm during remote instruction.  

    Mrs. Shaver works with students whose last names begin with M-Z.  Mrs. Shaver is available Monday- Friday from 8:00 am- 3:30 pm during remote instruction.   


    Here are some reasons a student at Maryvale Middle might want to talk to the School Counselor: 

    • They are concerned about their grades.
    • They are having problems with their peers.
    • They are under a great deal of stress or they are feeling anxious, uneasy, or depressed.
    • There are problems in the family.
    • There has been an illness or death of a loved one.
    • There is a problem outside of the classroom that they can't handle on their own.
    • They are having behavior or adjustment problems in the classroom.

    Here are some reasons parents at Maryvale Middle might want to talk to the School Counselor: 

    • You are concerned because your child is struggling making friends.
    • Your child has recently experienced a loss of a loved one and needs support.   
    • Your family is experiencing changes and you feel that your child can benefit from extra support.
    • Your child seems to get frustrated doing his/her homework or is not completing homework and it is causing failing grades.
