National School Counseling Week, sponsored by ASCA, highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.

Monday, February 3rd:
Starting 4th period and throughout the entire day, counselors will be on the 7th floor south side with a table set up to engage our students in conversation about what we could do to become our best selves. Students will be encouraged to write positive words of affirmation that best describe what it means for us to be and do our best as human beings.

Tuesday, February 4th – Thursday, February 6th
During 5th-8th lunch periods, a series of workshops will be facilitated by various staff that are aligned to this year’s theme. Some of the workshops will be on Self-Care, Mindfulness, Meditation, Stress/Anxiety Management, Embracing Diversity, Growth Mindset, and Art Therapy. Locations and specific workshop topics will be announced and sent via email.

All Week:
Take a moment to visit your counselor and write something positive on their office door. We want to know how best we could assist our students.

Morning Announcements:

Every morning during 3rd period announcements, a counselor will read an encouraging message associated with our theme. Be sure to take a moment to receive the message.
