This week we are celebrating National School Counseling Week, “School Counselors: Standards-Based, Student-Focused,” to focus public attention on the unique contribution of school counselors within U.S. school systems and how students are different as a result of what school counselors do. National School Counseling Week highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career. Our school counselors work hard to support the needs of all our students.  We want to celebrate them during School Counseling Week. Please take a moment to thank your counselor this week for the phenomenal work they do each and every day. Thank you Ms. Ueckermann, Mr. Quinn, Ms. Hart, Ms. Douglas, Mr. Scott, and Ms. Fick.  We appreciate you!
