I admire your courage in how you are willing to enter this year with an open mind and heart, while still adjusting to the last few semesters. Many of you have endured huge losses in the form of losing loved ones, struggling with your own health issues, feeling lost with online schooling and missing the relationships formed in the school setting. We educators feel that in our soul too, and are here for you!
How do you want this school year to look and feel like? What types of learning experiences do you want to create? What activities do you want to either try or resume that are meaningful to you in meeting your personal goals? If you imagine it is already May of 2022 and you are reflecting back on this past year, what will you be glad you accomplished?
Questions like these help you set your "intentions" or goals for the year. If you know what you want to do, you have a better chance of making the day to day decisions that will keep you on track.
You will have lots of support in this process. School Counselors, as a collective group, are in your school settings to help you succeed academically, emotionally & socially, while helping you plan for your future career success. Let us know how we can help!

Welcome back and again, I hope this is your BEST year yet!!
