This Week Honors School Counselors
School Counselors Recognized During National School Counseling Week
National School Counseling Week is celebrated from February 6–10, 2012, to focus attention on the unique contribution of professional school counselors across the United States. National School Counseling Week highlights the impact school counselors have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a bright future.
This designated week provides recognition for school counselors who implement comprehensive school counseling programs, a vital part of the educational process for all students as they meet the challenges of the 21st century. School counselors are acknowledged for being actively engaged in helping students examine their abilities, strengths, interests and talents; for working in partnership with parents as they encounter the challenges of raising children in today's world; for focusing on positive ways to enhance students' social/personal, educational and career development; and working with teachers and other educators to provide an educational system where students can realize their potential and set healthy, realistic and optimistic aspirations for themselves.
Professional school counselors are certified, experienced educators with a master's degree in guidance and counseling. The combination of their training and experience makes them an integral part of the total educational program. Parents or community members interested in more information about the school counseling program in the Warwick School District are welcome to contact their school counselors at their respective schools.
