All West Genesee Middle School students are included on the "W" or "G" team. Students remain on the same team for their entire middle school years. The team offers both the student and the parent a coordinated support to their academics as your child faces the increased responsibility of the middle level years. Counselors at West Genesee Middle School loop with students as they move through the Middle School. Looping allows us to keep one counselor tied to a student through their three years in the building and helps to streamline communication and maximize student contact time. For the 2015-2016 school year Cindy Kurz will be working with our 6th grade students, Kathleen Weber with our 7th grade students and Crystal Best with our 8th grade students.
Students are randomly assigned to the teams before they arrive in grade 6. The teams are balanced in number and academic ability of students. Each team is comprised of the grade level core area teachers: English, Social Studies, Math, Science, Reading (grade 6), and the School Counselor. These teams of teachers meet daily. This time is set aside for coordination of curriculum, review of student work, parent and student contacts and conferences.
We welcome parent calls during this time. You may reach the teams by calling the Guidance Office at 315-487-4622.
