Next week my co-counselor and we will be using National School Counseling Week to promote our program and thank our supporters. Our district is considering reducing the number of elementary counselors so we know it is important to recognize those who can advocate for the elementary counseling program in our school and district. I sent the ASCA description of the week to our principal for her Notes to parents and staff and our PTA President for their electronic newsletter. We will put an announcement out to our staff on our Blackboard site as well.We have a banner to hand in the main hall. We are filling a bucket for our administrators with a note on a drop thanking them for their support. We will also thank the members of our advisory council at our meeting that will be held Thursday of National School Counseling Week. We put the districts news release about NSCW on our web page. On Friday we will thank our whole staff by providing a bucket of treats in the staff lounge. On Friday evening of NSCW the counseling program is co-sponsoring with the PTA our school's first multicultural pot luck dinner and performances. Happy National School Counseling Week!
