National School Counseling Week ~ Feb. 1-5

Let's show appreciation for our school counselors by participating in National School Counseling Week. The theme is "School Counseling: The Recipe for Success." Below you will see ideas on how to give your school counselor a shout out. Feel free to snap a pic and send it to me briggss@wsd3.org and I'll be sure to post on our district Twitter and Facebook. I'll also be around the schools to get a few of my own pictures. THANK YOU counselors for helping our students achieve success!
