School Counselor Appreciation Week - 12 Special Ways to Honor Them

We Love Our School Counselors!

According to the America School Counselor Association (ASCA), School Counselor Appreciation Week is held the first full week in February every year. This special week is solely dedicated to those passionate caretakers who do so much for our school community.

From supporting the social and emotional development of our students, to often being a principals' right-hand person ~ our school counselors are indispensable. It seems fitting that, much like our amazing classified staff and beloved teachers, these important school teammates are celebrated for an entire week.

The Many Hats of our School Counselors

What hats won't a school counselor wear? That's been my experience with this talented group of educational professionals. I've had the privilege of teaching along side and leading dozens of school counselors of all ages and backgrounds. Their unique traits are what make them "the go-to person" for so many students.

Celebrating Counselor Appreciation Week

There are lots of amazing and fun ways to say "thank you!" to our school counselors. Counselors are often the first people contacted when a student or their family are in need of support. Time after time, they selflessly step in to help.

These TWELVE ideas will hopefully inspire you and your school to show your gratitude throughout the entire School Counselor Appreciation Week.
