It's National School Counseling Week!!Yay!!!
This year I decided I had to celebrate and advocate for my program (and all of you). So here is my week, what are you doing?
This month’s Top Dog word is courage. Courage means being brave and meeting a challenge without giving in to fear.This week is National School Counseling week! Do you know about all of the special things school counselors do? Counselors help students face their fears and encourage students to be brave every day.
This week to celebrate National School Counseling week Ms. Filtness is hosting a trivia challenge. Each day we will read a trivia question about Ms. Filtness and her program. If you think you know the answer write the answer, your full name, and teachers name on a piece of paper and turn it in to Ms. Filtness by lunch. Winners will be announced at the end of the day.
* I got the announcement ideas from the "ASCA Scene."
Today was chicken soup and chocolate for the soul day*. I made several veggie soups and purchased chicken soup from a local favorite: Demos. I also scored a sweet coupon deal and got saltines at Publix for a penny! I added to the luncheon by making a few trays of brownies and some chocolate treats. To finish it off I put out some fun magazines, the kind I like to curl up with on the couch on Sundays, like "Real Simple" or "Marie Claire." *idea also borrowed from the "Scene."
