FSMS Counselor

Hello! My name is Mary Shipley, and I am the school counselor at FSMS.   I started my teaching career in 1996 as a math teacher here at the middle school and moved into the counseling role in 2002.  I am excited to be here and want to help all students be successful at the middle school. Please feel free to contact me at the middle school (586-4401).

The FSMS counseling department can assist students and parents with .......

  • Registration and Orientation
  • Career Exploration
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Classroom Guidance Activities
  • Parental Assistance
  • Coordination of Academic Interventions
  • Schedule changes
  • Special Education Referrals
  • Individual Counseling

What should students do in order to see their counselor?
Once a teacher gives permission for a student to see the counselor, they will call or e-mail the counselor.  If we are avaliable, the student can proceed to our office. Once the conseling session is over, the student will recieve a note for entry back into class. Student's can also fill out a referral form and have the office place it in the counselor's mailbox. 

How can parents get in touch with the counselor? 
Parents can contact me by phone (# 586-4401) anytime during the school day or by e-mail mary.shipley@simpson.kyschools.us.
