Stacey Ramirez- School Counselor
I am a Klamath Falls girl. I was born and raised in the basin. I attended all three Henley Schools, Western Oregon University, and Southern Oregon University. I taught middle school health for two years before coming to Henley Middle School.
I am so excited to be back at Henley and be a positive role model for our students! I work closely with our staff members to make sure your student has the best educational experience at HMS.

SEMESTER GRADES/ HONOR SOCIETY
Don't forget to encourage your student(s) to be taking advantage of any opportunity for help. Semester report cards will come out the end of January. These grades will go on their transcripts, so it is important they are doing their best to improve low grades or work hard to keep up their good marks. We have math tutoring, study skills, and math lab all as support tools for your student(s). Also remember to check my home page for information regarding Honor Society. The applications will be coming out to students with their report cards in January. If this is something your child is interested in there is a GPA requirement of 3.5 or better. Contact me at the school if you have any questions.
Citizens for Safe Schools
Kids in the Middle” (KIM) is all about "providing youth with opportunities to build resiliency and character by connecting them to caring adult mentors who model and encourage relationships built on trustworthiness, personal responsibility and positive communication." Research is overwhelmingly clear: when youth have at least one responsible adult in their lives, they are significantly less likely to drop out of school, become bullies or abuse drugs. KIM is part of the overarching mission of Citizens for Safe Schools to connect young people to their community. Together they strive to create a culture that values and understands youth.
If you or your student are interested in this program and believe a mentor would benefit your child please contact me at the school at 541-883-5050 or Citizens for Safe Schools at 541-882-3198!!
