Happy National School Counseling Week!

National School Counseling Week (February 6-10, 20230, sponsored by the American School Counseling Association (ASCA), highlights the essential contribution of school counselors within U.S. school systems and the tremendous impact they have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career. 120,000 school counselors across the country will be joining together in a week of advocacy for our profession; acknowledgment of their contributions to academic, social-emotional, and college/career development; and recognition of the important collaboration with families, staff, students, and communities. 

Every student deserves a school counselor, and I am so grateful to be the counselor at Bay Laurel #HelpingStudentsDreamBig!
