National School Counseling Week

We are smack dab in the middle of National School Counseling Week, sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA).

This special week, Feb. 4-8, is set aside to focus public attention on the unique contribution of professional school counselors within U.S. school systems. The theme of this year’s counseling week is School Counseling: Liberty and Learning for All.

The special week honoring school counselors provides recognition for school counselors who are a vital part of the educational process for all students as they meet the challenges of the 21st century.

Hart's school counselors are commended for being actively engaged in helping students examine their abilities, strengths, interests and talents; for working in a 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.

Hart counselors are committed to providing relevant and developmentally appropriate services so that all students benefit from the school counseling program. They work collaboratively with students, staff and parents to address all students’ academic, personal/social and career development needs.

We salute our counselors for their continued efforts to promote liberty and learning for all as they continue to serve a vital role in student success.
