Welcome to the Guidance Office! 
I am Vondra Payne, your Guidance Counselor.  I am both excited and honored to serve Bardstown Middle School in this capacity.  I am here to help our students obtain their personal, social, and academic goals this year.  
I will serve our students in several capacities this year.  Just to name a few: individual guidance counseling, group guidance counseling, whole class guidance, scheduling, transitioning, and coordinating assessments.  It is my goal to continuously help our students  learn ways to build positive social skills, gain confidence in their abilities, and deal with conflicts constructively.
Students may request to see me at any time by filling out a Guidance Counselor Request Form. The forms are located in classrooms, outside my office, and on the BMS webpage.  Please feel free to contact me with your questions/concerns throughout the year at (502) 331-8907 or by emailing me at  If I’m not available, please feel free to leave a message. 
The middle school years can be challenging for many reasons.  The Bardstown Middle School staff are here to support you through these stages.  I am looking forward to a Great year!
