National School Counseling Week, sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), will be celebrated from Feb. 7–11, 2011, to focus public attention on the unique contribution of professional school counselors within U.S. school systems and how students are different as a result of what school counselors do. National School Counseling Week highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.
The special week honoring school counselors 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,” according to our school administration.
We are very blessed to have three wonderful school counselors working with our students, faculty and parents here at Walker High. Mrs. Linda Cain, Mrs. Babs Carter and Mrs. Jolei Higgins help to keep us all informed of educational opportunities and to guide us through the tough decisions of the teenage years.
