Hello! My name is Caroline Graham and I am the school counselor here at Bowdon Middle School. This is my 5th year here at BMS and I am so blessed to get to work with such a wonderful faculty, student body, and group of parents! Please contact me if I can assist you or your child in any way.

 

The main goal of my job is to help your child through the wonderful, and sometimes challenging, middle school years by assisting with academic achievement, helping provide a safe school environment, leading a school-wide character education program by providing career guidance lessons, individual counseling and small group counseling, as well as providing access to resources for all students at BMS. 

 

Please feel free to call me or stop in so that we can meet face to face. I am truly delighted to have the opportunity to serve you and our BMS students!

 

Best Regards,

 

Caroline Graham
