National Say Something week is March 13-17, 2023
Sandy Hook Promise’s no-cost Say Something program teaches middle and high school students to recognize the warning signs of someone at-risk of hurting themselves or others and how to say something to a trusted adult to get help. The mission of the Sandy Hook Promise is protecting America’s children from gun violence in honor of the precious lives that were lost at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut in 2012.
This week during Lead Block, teachers will discuss school violence and how to raise awareness on seeing something and saying something. Students and staff will sign their names to a pledge to help keep our school safe. Lastly on Wednesday, students and staff are asked to wear green in support of the Sandy Hook Say Something program.
The Western Guilford Middle School Counseling Department agrees…
In the ability of all students to be successful regardless of background, limitations, capabilities, and or setbacks,
That the role of a school counselor is to be an advocate for the needs of all students based on their academic and/or developmental needs.
As a school counselor, we will be a voice for those students who need support, resources, and assistance in and out of the classroom.
All team members, including administrators, school counselors, teachers, staff, community leaders, and family members must actively be involved in the planning, managing, delivery, and evaluation of program activities designed to meet the needs of our students.
Valid data must be analyzed on an on-going basis to properly assist with making informed program decisions that will best meet the needs of all students.
All decisions must be driven by the ASCA ethical standards which all school counselors use as a daily guide in their profession.
Our Comprehensive School Counseling Program promotes a community that fosters personal inquiry and growth, social responsibility, and academic excellence for our students thereby leading to responsible and productive citizenship in the 21st century.
To provide a proactive, comprehensive, and developmentally appropriate program to address students' academic and career goals in addition to supporting their personal and social needs. This is accomplished through a partnership with parents/guardians, staff, and community members to enable all students to become successful, productive citizens and lifelong learners in a diverse and changing world.
