National School Counseling Week
This week was National School Counseling Week 2015, "Celebrate School Counseling." It was created to focus public attention on the unique contribution of professional school counselors within U.S. school systems. National School Counseling Week, sponsored by ASCA, highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career. National School Counseling Week is always celebrated the first full week in February.
Please join us in thanking our AMAZING school counselors, Stephen Boyle, Ashley Carlson, Ed D'Addio, Megan Johnson and Marisa Tamayo for all they do to support our students.
