National School Counseling Week is a time to advocate and educate to parents, faculty, administration and stakeholders what our school counseling program is all about. While a lot of people view it as a day of recognition for counselors, that is not the purpose of this week. It truly is about getting the word out about what we do to help students.
National School Counseling Week 2017, “School Counseling: Helping Students Realize Their Potential,” will be celebrated from Feb. 6-10, 2017. You can get a lot of information from the ASCA website about how to celebrate in your school.
I love participating in all the photo challenges on Twitter.
Because NCSW is such an important week, I’ve rounded up some free resources to help you let your school know what you do.
I put together a poster of the 7 Ups of Counseling and daily messages for mailboxes. You can get them in my TpT store.
