    School Counselors
    Our school counselors have Master's Degrees and are professionally trained in the three domains of school counseling: academic success, college and career readiness, and social/emotional development. Click here for the American School Counselor Association description of the middle school counselor.

    Mission Statement
    The mission of the Washington Township Middle School Counseling program is to provide a comprehensive school counseling program that addresses the academicand social/emotional development of all students.  The Middle School Counseling program, aligned with the mission of the district, will advocate for all students by enhancing the overall school climate and helping students acquire developmentally appropriate skills which are necessary to become productive, responsible, and civic-minded students.  The school counselor will work in partnership with other educators, parents/guardians, administration, and community resources.  This partnership will provide all students with the opportunities to acquire the personal/social, organizational and problem solving skills, knowledge and attitudes needed to become lifelong learners, and responsible, contributing citizens in our society.
     
    According to the Federal Regulation (42 CFR Part 2), the Student Assistance Coordinator cannot disclose to anyone information that a student discusses with them without the permission of the student. There are only two exceptions to this law. The first is in instances where the student expresses the desire to hurt himself/herself or another person. The second exception involves situations of abuse. In both cases the SAC is obligated to inform school or legal personnel. However, there are a few exceptions to this law.  If a student tells the SAC that he/she wishes to hurt himself/herself or anyone else, actions must be taken to prevent this from happening.  Also, if a student discloses that abuse is happening to him/her, the SAC has the obligation to report the abuse. With this confidentiality law, students feel comfortable disclosing information to their SAC.

Mr. Daniel Fimiani, 6th Grade School Counselor

Now this is a story all about how
Mr. Fim grew up in a small little town
And I'd like to take a minute, just sit right still
I'll tell you how he became a counselor at Bunker Hill.

In Southern New Jersey, born and raised
Playin' sports is where he spent most of his days
Chillin' out, maxin', relaxin' all cool
And all shootin’ some b-ball out in the yard.
When a couple of kids came over to play
They’d be outside until the end of the day.
Played baseball at Rutgers and earned a Bachelor’s degree
Then onto a Master’s at Rowan University.

He hunted for a job and when it came ‘round
Bunker Hill was the place to settle it down
If anything he could say that this job was chill
So he said, Yo I’m here! Now his home is the Hill. 

He walks out to the busses around 7:28
And yells to the students, “Go make this day GREAT!”
Turned and looked at his kingdom he was finally there
To help kids with their grades as well as those in despair.
