My name is Christine Wilt. I am the school counselor for grades 7 & 8 at North Star East Middle School. I am at the middle school during the first half of every school day. I provide guidance lessons focused on the career, education, & work standards as outlined by the state of Pennsylvania. I also organize various career oriented experiences for our 8th grade students. The students have the opportunity to tour the SCTC (Somerset County Technology Center) as 8th grade students and participate in Move Up Day at the end of the school year. I also provide guidance to any student in the areas of academic, social, & personal. I also oversee the Remembering Adam program for students in this grade that promotes being drug free. This involvement requires parent consent and is offered every school year. I also complete transition for students with IEP's. Students need to be turning 14 years of age within the school calendar year. Please click on the grade below that is applicable to your student's current grade.

8th Grade SCTC Tour
This year the 8th grade class will be touring the SCTC on Friday, March 13, 2020. This is a great opportunity for our 8th grade students to be introduced to the trades offered through the Somerset County Technology Center (SCTC). Each student will be introduced to all the programs available and to ask questions. As a 9th grade student, they will have the opportunity to return back to the SCTC and spend the afternoon in 2 programs of their choosing and submit a formal application to be accepted as a 10th grade student. The bus permission slips will be handed out to students at the end of February, so be on the look out for it. Parent signature is required for the student to attend. Deadline to return bus permission slips will be Friday, March 6, 2020.
The Remembering Adam program as begun at the NSMS. Any 7th or 8th grade student who has not turned in a permission form can do so anytime throughout the school year. It's never to late to be part of the program. Permission forms are good for one school year only. When parents provide consent for their student to participate, it is permitting your student to be randomly drug tested by the school. The consent form has been upload to Mrs. Wilt's page and to the 7th Grade & 8th Grade class.
