National School Counseling Week February 3rd-7th, Providing Lessons for Life

National School Counseling Week, sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), is celebrated from Feb. 3-7, 2020, 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 MWISD Superintendent, John Kuhn. 

MWISD thanks our school counselors 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. Our professional school counselors are certified, experienced educators with a master's degree. The combination of their training and experience makes them an integral part of the total MWISD educational program.
