Social Media Reminder - From the Guidance Department at MS 51

(Ms Bosco 6th grade , Mr Phillips 7th grade &  Ms Zaengle 8th grade)

 We would like to take this opportunity to remind all of our families that we believe in a partnership approach in helping teens to grow and learn.  Middle School is the developmental time where students are developing their moral code, learning their boundaries with peers and beginning to work on their own unique identities.  Peer approval  becomes very important for them at this age.  And navigating their way around fitting in and being liked, without following the crowd can be very tricky.
