National School Counseling Week 2019 - "School Counselors: Providing Lessons for Life," will be celebrated from Feb. 4-8, 2019, to focus public attention on the unique contribution of school counselors within U.S. school systems. National School Counseling Week, sponsored by American School Counselor Association (ASCA), highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.
The special week honoring school counselors provides recognition for school counselors who implement comprehensive school counseling programs, a vital part of the educational process for all students as they meet the challenges of the 21st century.
"Maybe you don't see them every day, but school counselors are there for students when they need them. Whether students go to their counselor for advice about a personal problem; for support preparing for college; for assistance with figuring out the school schedule; or trying to handle the pressures of school and extracurricular activities, professional school counselors play a critical—and often unsung—role in our schools. The Beaverton School District is lucky to have such dedicated counselors who work tirelessly to support all students. Thank you, counselors, for all that you do." says Danielle Hudson, Executive Administrator for Student Services.
Please take a moment to thank your school counselor.
