Miss Purdy's Counseling Corner

Welcome to SMS!

Welcome to the 2023-24 school year!

I'm Miss Purdy and I am the school counselor at SMS. I have worked at SMS for five years. I have been a Bearcat for the past 26 years in various levels; teaching elementary, counseling, student support specialist, and a Title One reading teacher. I love working with and supporting our middle school students. I advocate for all students in academics, career, and attendance. I also schedule students into their classes. I provide support for any issues that students may need support in.

Feel free to call me at (269) 965-9648 or email me at rpurdy@battle-creek.k12.mi.us with any questions you may have.
