What message do you want to share?
School counselors are truly the heart of the school and have the ability to make a difference in the lives of students. Our actions don’t have to be big to make this change. Just taking the time to greet a student warmly in the hall, checking in with a student in a short impromptu meeting, providing a quick snack to a student who missed breakfast, or attending a event in support of a student can make a HUGE impact on students for the better. All students need is just one champion…so be that champion!
