    A Message from the Kettering Middle School Guidance Department

    Dear Parents and Guardians,

        We are excited to bring greetings to you and your young scholars who attend Kettering Middle School. I hope that they had a very restful and enjoyable summer. We are now ready to embark on the journey of supporting our students’ learning and growing to foster productive citizens that will make a positive contribution to our “ever changing society”. The scholars at Kettering Middle School are eager to develop themselves as positive and productive young adults.

        Kettering Middle School has two Professional School Counselors. Dr. Jones is the 6th and 7th grade (A-M) Professional School Counselor and Ms. Smith is the 7th (N-Z) and 8th grade Professional School Counselor. We are here to assist students to grow and achieve their personal goals in academics, attendance and behavior. We are also willing to meet with parents during the instructional day either by email or phone during the hours of 7:30am and 2:45pm daily to address your concerns. We believe by working together in a collaborative manner we will be able to produce the best and the brightest.  


    Dr. Jones and Ms. Smith
