Welcome back mighty Gryphons!
I am thrilled to be your child's 8th grade School Counselor for the 2019-2020 school year! This is my fifth year as a School Counselor at CCG!! I am going into my 17th year as a School Counselor and I absolutely LOVE what I do. I love working with children and helping them to soar above and beyond. I look forward to working with my 8th grade students in order to help them become life-long learners and socially responsible individuals. I am happy and excited to be a part of such a great team at C. C. Griffin STEM Middle School!
This year I will be preparing my scholars for their transition to 9th grade. There will be a lot of activities going on throughout the year to assist with this process. Check back often to learn about these upcoming activities.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
We are half way through the school year and there is still much more we need to do in order to prepare our scholars for high school.
I will be going into the Social Studies classrooms this month (January 2020) to conduct a lesson on transitioning to high school. My scholars will learn general information about high school, what is to be expected of them, new terminolgy used at the high school level, and they will be completing their 9th grade registration form. The forms will come home so that parents can discuss with their scholar. The forms will need to be returned to me with signatures (scholar and a parent). Registration forms are due to your scholars homeroom Teacher no later than Friday, January 31, 2020.
All rising 9th grade scholars will be visiting Central Cabarrus High School (CCHS) the first week of March 2020. Permission slips will be due to your scholars homeroom Teacher no later than Friday, January 31, 2020.

Our scholars will visit CCHS to take a tour, learn valuable information about high school, speak with current students, Counselors, and Administrative staff.
