Bullying Curriculum (press release)
Counselors present the bullying curriculum to sixth and seventh grade classrooms throughout the school year.
Peer Raiders Involved in Developing Excellence - PRIDE
The PRIDE Program is a great tool that emphasizes respect for self and others. PRIDE participants will help new students become acquainted to PCMS, assist counselors with alternative lunch activities, tutor students during team study, and assist in presenting classroom-counseling lessons. Students meet once per month after school to discuss the program under the guidance of school counselors. PRIDE Members are represented by students who show respect for self and others, interact appropriately with students and staff, and are dependable.
