Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!

School Counselor

My name is Kostas Zourzoukis. Most of my students call me “Mr. Z”. This will be my fifth year at Benton Middle School and my tenth year in the field of education. I will be working with students whose last names begin with R-Z. Below is my information if you would like to contact me:

Academic Career Plans

7th Grade students that did not complete an ACP in FACS class will be receiving an email this week with a PowerPoint presentation and a link on how to complete it.  It is a county wide requirement for all students in 7th grade. The direct link to the page is:

 PWCS cares deeply about students' emotional well-being during their time away from school.  If a student is in need of emotional support during this time, please feel free to send an e-mail to studentsupportservices@pwcs.edu.  A school mental health or health professional will answer and offer virtual support to students to the best of their ability. This e-mail is not to be used for emergency situations as it will not be monitored 24 hours a day. If a student is ever in an emergency situation he/she is encouraged to call 911 or utilize one of the resources listed below.
