Thank a school counselor

At its January meeting, the Lamar CISD Board of Trustees passed a resolution proclaiming Feb. 5-9 as School Counselor Week in Lamar CISD.

Lamar CISD employs professional counselors at every campus and are valuable members of the educational teams in schools. Counselors contribute to the development of children through guidance, counseling, consultation, coordination, assessment and program management.

School counselors also work with parents, teachers, administrators and the community to optimize student learning. They are important resource persons in understanding and responding to student behavior.

School counselors respond daily to crises in students' lives. These crises include issues such as suicide, abuse, drug and alcohol use, pregnancy and family problems.

In passing the resolution, the Board acknowledged the importance of counselors to the success of students in Lamar CISD.
