January 29 - February 3 was Catholic Schools Week. The theme this year was Catholic Schools - Faith, Academics, Service. I decorated my door using my silhouette paper cutter to cut out the letters. For each trait, I printed off examples of how school counselors support and promote trait. Faith - virtue education, personal development, self-awareness. Academics - study skills, goal setting, organizational skills, personal success. Service - stewardship, citizenship, career education, community involvement. I am really pleased with how my door turned out.
On that Friday, we had an all school assembly with games and activities. The teachers play the 8th graders in a volleyball game and special guest showed up to help - Fredbird, the mascot for the St. Louis Cardinals! It was great to see all of the kids get excited when he walked into the gym. He played volleyball, danced with the Kindergarten students, and threw out t-shirts and prizes to the kids in the stands. It was a lot of fun and I got to have my picture taken with him! What a fun way to end the week!
