Student Information

Counselors at PAMS work hard to get to know all students and build a bond to help with their social-emotional wellbeing.  We are here to help students feel welcome, and show them that they belong to the PAMS family.  Students should feel free to reach out to a counselor - we are here for you!  We understand that middle school is a challenging time with many ups and downs and we are here for any concerns students may have. Your counselors are also here to support and build Academic Goals for students.   We will also meet with students to begin building Career Goals to help students succeed in the future.

PAMS OLWEUS Anti-Bullying Information

PAMS has been working hard to teach students ways to stop bullying at school, at home, and on social media.  If you feel that you are being bullied, or have seen another student being bullied please follow the links below to our Bully Prevention website and fill out a bullying form to help your fellow classmates.  As we have learned from Serious Superhero Stuff with Steve... and Mike. "You are not getting someone in trouble, you are getting someone OUT of trouble!"   You can also find the form on the BPT tab on your canvas homepage.
