National School Counseling Week

Burnsville High School will be focusing on “Liberty and Learning for All” in celebration of National School Counseling Week.

You might wonder what that means. Liberty is defined as “the power of choosing, thinking, and acting for oneself.” Learning means to gain knowledge through systematic study. So, this week we will consider how individuals can be responsible for their own learning and behavior here at school and at home with friends, parents and teachers to have 'Lasting Impact.'

It’s not always easy to be responsible. Every day there are distractions and roadblocks — tough classes, peer pressure, friendship problems, social media, family concerns and more. School counselors want to help students overcome those obstacles to reach their full potential and learn how to be responsible for learning and their life. School counselors help to 'Build Yourself' up. 

Please stop by the Guidance Office this week to celebrate National School Counseling. On Tuesday, Feb. 3 in the Career Center, you can fill out a survey and get a frosted treat, courtesy of the School Counseling Department. Students are welcome to visit during their study hall or lunch. Seniors can stop by the Tech Lab at the senior campus to fill out the survey and get a treat!

Contact the Guidance Office if you have any questions.

The school counselors thank you in advance for celebrating with them!
