Note from the President

Welcome Back!

Dear fellow School Counselors,
Welcome back to a new school year. I hope you all have had a smooth transition into a new year with your staff and students. Oftentimes in our jobs, we are fortunate to hear the great, fun things students did over the summer. Yet, also while catching up with students, we hear that some may have encountered tragedy. Through all of life’s ups and downs we are there for the students. I know that we will all do the best we possibly can to ensure that all our students’ academic, social/emotional, and college and career needs are met. Have a great year! ~ Suzanne Scott WySCA President

Save the Date!

We usually hold our annual Spring Conference around April 24th in Casper, WY. Stay tuned for more information as we secure a date and location.

Stay in Tune!

Please make sure your fellow school counselors received this newsletter. If they did not, please have them email me the following information so we can include them in our WySCA contacts: school district name, school counselor name, grade levels served, email address, school phone number.


If you haven’t already heard, ASCA is in the process of updating the Student Standards to “The ASCA Mindsets and Behaviors for Student Success: K-12 College- and Career-Readiness Standards for Every Student.” A draft version can be found at http://www.schoolcounselor.org/asca/media/asca/home/MindsetsBehaviors.pdf

A finalized version is supposed to be ready by this fall.

Like us, follow us but most importantly learn and share things with each other :)
