Eden  Middle  School 
    Counselor: Mr. Minton
    Grades 6-8
    Helping students, teachers and parents of the
    Eden School community.
    Hey!!!  With over 30 years of counseling experience, I am honored to serve the students and the educational community of Eden. 
                                                             You can expect quality with the educational programs offered at Eden Central Schools.
    We are a smaller school that offers a broad range of student activities.  I've found that students who become involved in at least one activity will generally feel more connected and perform better in school.  The age of our middle level  students is a time when social connections are of high importance to student development. 
    So parents, please encourage your children to become involved during these years. 
    As a father of  two children, both in college, I understand the time and energy it takes to be a parent, in addition to working.  It is also very important to understand the importance of  parental involvement with academic achievement and social/emotional well-being.  With this in mind, please let me know if there is anything I can do to assist you and your children with their education at Eden Middle/High School. 
    Below you will find a few website links that will be helpful to both parents and students as they travel through the middle and high school years.

    for your success in life and careers.

    Spend time with your children, engage with them one on one.  Listen to them;
    seek to understand them, even if you don't agree.  Look at their home life,
    school life, challenges, and the problems they are facing through THEIR eyes.
