Milk and Cookies! A National School Counseling Week TREAT!

Cookies Galore!
National School Counseling week is officially upon us! To celebrate this week, every elementary school counselor in the district came together to promote this career and give back! This is just one of the reasons why I love this job; even though it is a week FOR school counselors, our counselors were the ones giving BACK to the district. We gathered together at the administration building and invited such individuals as the superintendent, administrative assistants, the human resources department, and the other school counselors in the middle and high school. We shared the great story, "Cookies Bite-size life lessons" by Amy Krouse Rosenthal. It is a phenomenal book that explains all the things you can do with a simple cookie!  After making a variety of cookies, we shared this story and paper  (pictured below).  A milk and cookies afternoon seemed to hit the spot and put a smile on many faces! I hope you have a great NSCW and take the time to thank YOUR school counselor.
