Dear Parents and Guardians,


My name is Marcy Gomez and I am the counselor at CIS.  I hope your children are having a great experience so far at Clayton Intermediate School.    I am excited about the new school year and getting to know all the new students!


I will be doing Classroom Guidance lessons with all classes.  5th grade lessons will focus on accepting others as they are and being a good friend.  We will be doing some fun activities while learning about getting along with others.  In the spring, the 6th grade students will be getting ready for middle school!  The lessons will focus on organization, study skills and a preview of what life in middle school is like.  At the end of the year, we will go to Smyrna Middle School for a tour of the school.


Sometimes things going on outside of school can affect a child’s performance in school.  I am here to help your child deal with changes at home, the birth or death of a loved one, having a family member who is deployed with our military and any other changes or issues they may be experiencing.  My hope is that we can work together to help your child have the best possible experience here at CIS!


Please contact me with any concerns by email at or by phone at 653-4512.
