National School Counseling Week

Day 1

  • Monday
    Today is the first day of “National School Counseling Week! Philosopher Confucius once said, “The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.” Potential is defined as, “an ability that may or may not be developed.” Everyone has the potential to achieve excellence and discovering your potential is an extraordinary journey. The first step to realizing your potential is exploration. As your school counselor, I’m here to help you find the keys to student’s personal potential. Come by and talk to me soon. 
    I encourage you to achieve something great today!

    Many times our individual qualities and talents are what fuel our potential. Sometimes they are so innate that we tend to overlook them as possible contributors to helping us live our best lives and make dynamic contributions to our school, family and the world. Today I encourage each of you to write down at least one quality or talent you have that makes you unique. It could be singing, writing, math, creative arts and more. Take a moment to think about how qualities/talents can make a difference in your life and the world around you. 
    If you ever want to chat about discovering your talents, feel free to stop by and talk to me soon. Enjoy your day!

    Congratulations to Mrs. Black for winning the NSCW trivia question again today!

    A wise man once said, “You do not become good by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you.” Once you’ve taken inventory of your qualities, traits and talents, you can now make a decision about how to use them toward achieving your full potential. Books, webinars, camps, extracurricular activities and volunteer programs can provide you with opportunities to learn about how your attributes can boost your potential. Take some time this week to research different ways you can nurture your potential through the methods I just described. For example, if you are a skilled writer, inquire about ways you can get involved with the school newspaper or yearbook committee. If you love animals, contact your local veterinary clinic to see if they are accepting volunteers. As always I am here to help, so stop by and see me. Have a productive day!

    Anne Frank once said, “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” Anne Frank did not know that her words, written while her family hid from the Nazis during World War II, would reach and touch millions of children and adults. Unfortunately, she did not get to see that happen. Did you know you can make a difference, through realizing your potential? Look at yourself and your life. What do you like? What skills do you need to improve? How can you help others to be successful? The teachers, administrators and staff here at Central Elementary are here to help students and each other during this journey. And if you ever want to chat about how you can make a difference, stop by and talk to me. Make today great!

    Congratulations to Ms. Nixon for winning the NSCW trivia question today!

    As a school counselor and like everyone in our school, I am here to make a difference in student’s lives. I want to help students reach their full potential and be successful in school and life. Every day, we face challenges that can be barriers to future success. I can help students deal with these challenges. I am here to help them deal with the challenges and frustrations that may keep them from being the best they can be. That’s what school counselors do! We help you build the future students need and want. Thank you for celebrating National School Counseling Week with me. Have a terrific and safe weekend!
