• 8th Grade School Guidance


    Middle School is an important time in the intellectual development of children.  The 8th grade is an important stage in each student's life where children begin to increase their awareness of reality and its' demands.  It is very important for adolescents to succeed in their academics, develop friendships and begin to take a more serious look at planning their future in regards to a career and/or furthering their education.

    The 8th grade counselor is available to assist students with academic concerns, conflict resolution, career awareness, study skills and problem-solving skills.  All parents are encouraged to feel free to contact me by email or telephone anytime. 

    My email address is: hammonds-steve@harris.k12.ga.us.  My phone number is 706/628-4951.  If you need me to call you back as soon as possible it is best to leave the receptionist a message and phone number.
