The Virginia Department of Education would like to recognize professional school counselors during the week of February 1-5, 2016, as we celebrate National School Counseling Week. This year’s theme, is entitled "School Counseling: The Recipe for Success," and highlights the tremendous impact school counselors have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.
School counselors work with all students to remove barriers to learning by addressing academic concerns, social/emotional issues and career awareness for postsecondary options. Comprehensive school counseling programs help to increase student achievement and are a vital part of the educational process for all students.
Thank you for all that you continually do for the students, staff, and community in your capacity as an EMS School Counselor.
Your efforts are greatly appreciated.
