Southside Region 8
Happy Spring!! I hope you all are doing well as we transition into the end of our school year! I do believe that our school year once again has flown by. I know many of you are preparing for end of the year ceremonies, at all levels, elementary, middle and high schools. As we end our school year I want you to know that VSCA is busily working on many changes for us. The statewide evaluation tool objective is moving right along and we are hoping to have this document ready for use by Fall 2016. It will finally feel great to know that our evaluations will be based on school counselor competencies only!!
Below are a few updates from VSCA as well as Region 8. Please let me know if you need anything or how VSCA can continue to help serve you.
VSCA's Spring Professional Development-Friday, April 29th
Region 8 Spring Meet & Greet-Thursday, April 28th
April is Military Month
Governor Terry McAuliffe has designated April as the Month of the Military Child and, along with First Lady Dorothy McAuliffe, is encouraging schools to show support for military children by participating in Purple Up! Day on April 15. The Virginia Department of Education has resources and information for schools, communities and families to recognize and support military children.
April 11th-15th in particular, has been designated to show support for our military children. I hope that we can show our support for our military students in Region 8 this month!!
