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.  

    Mrs. Shaver works with students whose last names begin with M-Z.  Mrs. Shaver is available Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.  


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

    • They are concerned about their grades.
    • Other students are calling them names or bullying them and they don't know what to do about it.
    • They are under a great deal of stress or they are feeling anxious, uneasy, or suicidal.
    • 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:

    • Your child is "cutting" or has had thoughts of suicide.
    • You are concerned because your child  keeps telling you that he doesn't have any friends.
    • You recently had a death in the family, and you're not sure how or what to tell your child.
    • Your child has difficulty going to sleep at night and often has nightmares.
    • You and your ex-spouse are divorced and you think your children could benefit from talking about it with another adult or with other students who are in similar situations.
    • Your child seems to get frustrated doing his/her homework, and nothing you say or do seems to help.
