6. Counseling Message: Good morning. Today is a part of National School Counseling Week. We would like to begin today’s message with a quote from Eleanor Roosevelt. She once said, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." Let me begin by asking you a question. What can you do to achieve your dreams? Work hard? Sure? Write down your dream on paper so you can see it every day. Of course. But there is one simple thing you must do in order to achieve your dreams – set goals.

Goals, similar to dreams, are things that you aspire to do. You can have a goal to get a certain grade in your most challenging class. You can have a goal to create a time management plan for tackling your homework after school. You can even have a goal to wake up a bit earlier each day so you won’t rush in the mornings before school. Goals are things you want to set your mind to accomplish. Do you need help with setting your personal goals? We are here, so stop by and see us. Stay focused. Be kind. Be great!  (ASCA)

 

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 6th, 2018

 

1. Counseling Team Message: Good morning. This is a message is from your counseling team at PBSHSA, today is the second day of National School Counseling Week. Our focus for the week is “Helping Students Reach for the Stars.”

Civil rights pioneer Harriet Tubman once said “Every dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

The message today is about your aspirations.

Aspirations are defined as a hope or ambition of achieving something. We sometimes call them stars – things you are reaching for. Sometimes aspirations, like stars, can seem so far away that they can’t be touched. But that doesn’t have to be your reality Aspirations can be anything you want them to be. A career choice, a personal wellness goal, an academic goal, anything. If you could list one or two things you would like to achieve, what would they be?

A wise man once said,” Your aspirations are your possibilities.”

If you ever want to chat about your “stars” or aspirations, feel free to stop by and talk to us.

Last years submissions

https://www.ioes.ucla.edu/project/green-shorts/

One last thing, the most common thing we hear from graduating students is that they wish they knew about the environmental career-path at an earlier age. Together we can learn from the current graduating class, and further a rising generation’s understanding of some of the most important issues facing our world.
