Who am I?
My name is Callie Peters and I am the Student Assistance Counselor/Anti-Bullying Specialist for Community Middle School.  This is my first year in the district, and I am so excited to be here!  I previously worked for another NJ school district as a SAC and school counselor as well as in a drug and alcohol rehab on the adolescent unit.  My masters degree is in Mental Health Counseling and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor.

Student Assistance Program

The West Windsor-Plainsboro Regional School District Student Assistance Counseling Program addresses the non-academic needs of students, including, but not limited to:

  • social and family issues,
  • anxiety,
  • stress,
  • mental health, 
  • substance abuse,
  • friendships,
  • peer mentoring,
  • grief/loss,
  • sexual orientation,
  • gender identity,
  • school culture. 

Student Assistance Counselors are confidential counselors who provide prevention and early intervention services to help students and their families receive the help and resources needed for improving overall well-being. The goal is to help students thrive socially, emotionally, and personally in order to live a healthy lifestyle and achieve their full potential.

Why is middle school so important?

Lots of changes happen during the middle school years – physically, cognitively, socially, and emotionally! Below are some resources to help you better understand your Middle Schooler.
