Happy School Counseling Week!

February 5-9 is National School Counseling Week, an observance sponsored by the American School Counselor Association that highlights the tremendous impact school counselors have in helping every student shape a successful future. Please join APS in saying thank you to our school counselors for their unique contributions to the district!

Professional school counselors hold a master’s degree with specialized training based on national standards and ethics governed by the American School Counselor Association. They work behind the scenes encouraging and supporting students to create, monitor and reach academic, personal, social and career goals.

Take part in the photo and video challenges below, which ASCA developed to help schools celebrate!

You may also promote National School Counseling Week during morning announcements. View 2018 sample morning announcements or archived morning announcements from previous years.

In APS, we believe student achievement and growth are driven by a highly-effective and respected staff working as a team. Thank you, APS school counselors, for “Helping Students Reach for the Stars”! We are proud to have you on our team.
