  • Welcome Back Message from the Counseling Team:

    We are so happy to have everyone returning to school. We are the Painted Hills Middle School counseling staff and wanted to tell you a little bit about ourselves. Octavio Medina is the counselor for all 6th graders and 7th graders with the last names beginning with A-L. Amy Lond is the counselor for 7th graders with the last names beginning M-Z and all 8th graders. The counseling staff is here to help students, parents, and teachers with a variety of things. We teach class guidance lessons, hold small groups, and see students individually. The topics we cover are Academic Success, Career & College Readiness, & Social-Emotional Learning.   Claudia Gomez is the Prevention Specialist. She helps parents and students with resources, such as the Insight program, chronic attendance, and she also works with “essential” kids in efforts to help to improve their grades. We are all here to support families.
