Happy National School Counseling Week 2017

This week marks National School Counseling Week 2017, themed “School Counseling: Helping Students Realize Their Potential.”

National School Counseling Week 2017 will be celebrated from Feb. 6-10, 2017 in order to focus attention on the unique contributions and impact of school counselors across the nation.

According to National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) study findings, 12th graders who talked about their future plans with a school counselor were:

• 6.8 times more likely to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
• 3.2 times more likely to attend college
• Two times more likely to attend a bachelor’s degree program

Each day this week has a different theme, allowing for photo opportunities that will show your school counselor how much you care.

The daily themes are as follows:

Monday, February 6: Happy National School Counseling Week

Download a sign to wish your school counselors a Happy National School Counseling Week.

Tuesday, February 7: Put the School in School Counselor

Show you know who puts the “school” in “school counselor” with a t-shirt sign.

Wednesday, February 8: Appreciation

Let your school counselors know why you love them by filling in, “I ♥ my school counselor because…” and taking a photo with today’s sign.

Thursday, February 9: Passion

Find out why your school counselor loves his or her job! Download the “I ♥ being a school counselor because…” sign and snap a photo with your school counselor holding the sign.

Friday, February 10: College/Career Readiness

Show how your school counselor inspires school spirit! Wear your future college gear or snap a photo with a sign declaring your college loyalties. You can find the sign here.
