Middle School Guidance PK3-8- Amy Rostan

Welcome to Middle School Advisory!

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! I am so thrilled to be a part of the Fuqua family as the Lower School/Middle School Counselor! Each Friday, students will participate in their Advisory groups focusing on our Core Value of the month. A team of teachers and administrators plan each Advisory. Example Advisories include team building, individual building, presentations from guest speakers and middle school students working with lower school students.

I am available throughout the year to meet with students regarding a variety of needs. My #1 goal is to support your student academically, socially, and emotionally. Please feel free to reach out to me at anytime so we can partner to help your child reach their boundless individual potential! I can be reached via email at rostanan@fuquaschool.com or via phone at (434) 392-4131 ext. 330

RECENT ADVISORY LESSONS:

Vivian Eason, Marissa Dempsey, Marina Morris, Joshua Milligan, Bradley French, and Julian Price attended the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities Prejudice Awareness Summit on Wednesday, 1/15/20 at Randolph College in Lynchburg, VA.  The summit is a one-day program that is designed to bring together approximately 100 Central Virginia 7th and 8th grade students to help equip them with the necessary tools to assist in areas of conflict resolution, prejudice and stereotype reduction, multicultural communication, leadership, and advocacy. The students worked in teams to develop achievable and concrete solutions to the tough challenges that they may face during their middle school years. This group of student leaders will now work alongside Mrs. Tucker and Mrs. Rostan to create a campaign bringing awareness about verbal dehumanization, bullying, and deliberate avoidance to our middle school students. Stay tuned for further information regarding their campaign!
