National School Counseling Week

The week of February 6-10, 2023 is National School Counseling Week in Arkansas. We would like to focus public attention on the unique contribution of school counselors within the Blytheville School District and how students are positively impacted as a result of what our counselors do. National School Counseling Week highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students meet their college and career aspirations.

We encourage you to contact your student's campus counselor and express thanks for their significant contributions to our children's futures.

This year's theme is “School Counselors: Helping Students Dream Big,” sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA). 

“School counselors work with all students to remove barriers to learning by addressing students’ academic concerns, career options and social/emotional skills,” said Jill Cook, ASCA executive director. “School counseling programs help to increase student achievement and provide a much-needed resource for students, parents, teachers and administrators. School counselors are integral to student success.”
