School Counseling Newsletter
To our seniors...
I know that it feels like it's over... but it's not over. As you miss your friends and sit in your remote learning "classrooms," as you think about prom or what graduation will now look like, as you feel slighted--- our hearts are with ya. I know these huge moments are what you have thought about for the past 4 years. We understand that you feel sad, angry, confused and overwhelmed. We're here to tell you that it is just getting started. High schools helps shape us into who we are going to be. The lessons you have learned and memories you have created will carry you. And remember, memories don't have to be made from just traditions, they can be created through sadness, tears and laughter. So keep making memories-- keep having car parades, leave a treat on your best friend's doorstep, have a virtual sleepover, reach out and stay connected. It isn't over... you're just getting started.
You are strong! Keep moving forward!
