National School Counseling Week is celebrated from Feb. 6–10, 2017, to focus public attention on the unique contribution of professional school counselors within U.S. school systems and how students are positively affected because of the great things that school counselors do. National School Counseling Week, sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.

The special week honoring school counselors provides recognition for school counselors who “implement comprehensive school counseling programs, a vital part of the educational process for all students as they meet the challenges of the 21st century," according to Charles Berkley, Superintendent of Lunenburg County Public Schools.

Lunenburg County Public Schools recognizes its school counselors for being actively engaged in helping students examine their abilities, strengths, interests and talents; for working in a partnership with parents as they encounter the challenges of raising children in today's world; for focusing on positive ways to enhance students' social/personal, educational and career development; and working with teachers and other educators to provide an educational system where students can realize their potential and set healthy, realistic and optimistic aspirations for themselves. Professional school counselors are certified, experienced educators with a master's degree in guidance and counseling. The combination of their training and experience makes them an integral part of the total educational program.

"School counselors work with all students to remove barriers to learning by addressing students’ academic concerns, career awareness in post-secondary options and personal/social skills,” said Kwok-Sze Wong, Ed.D., ASCA executive director. “Comprehensive school counseling programs help to increase student achievement and provide a much-needed resource for students, parents, teachers and administrators. School counselors are integral to student success."

As part of its celebration for National School Counseling Week, Lunenburg County Public Schools presented its school counselors with a Certificate of Appreciation. We thank Janet Johnson, Guidance Counselor at Kenbridge and Victoria Elementary Schools; Thelma Craig, Guidance Counselor at Lunenburg Middle School; and Geneva Hines and Stephanie Powers, Guidance Counselors at Central High School, for their monumental efforts in encouraging and supporting our students in so many different ways.  Thank you for all you do on a daily basis!

 


THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE, LUNENBURG COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD!
“Lead to Inspire”

Student Focused LeadershipStudent Focused Leadership

Lunenburg County Public Schools joins 133 other school divisions throughout the state to celebrate School Board Appreciation Month in February.  Almost 850 elected and appointed school board members throughout Virginia will be recognized by schools and communities for their service and dedication to public education.

The theme of this year’s celebration, “Lead to Inspire,” reflects the top priority of local school board members as they advocate for public education with local, state, and federal leaders.

The foundation of school leadership is ensuring equal learning opportunities for all students,” said Charles Berkley, Superintendent. “We’re proud of our division, and School Board Appreciation Month is the time to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of our elected trustees.”

In Lunenburg County, school board members must develop policies and make tough decisions on complex educational and social issues impacting the entire community. They bear responsibility for an annual budget of more than $ 17 million, 1,553 students, 279 employees, and 5 buildings.

“School board members statewide make decisions that affect 1.3 million Virginia children and more than $3 billion,” notes Berkley, “They preserve the core of our democracy—public education.”

Too often we neglect to recognize the dedication and hard work of these men and women who represent us. We invite you to recognize and celebrate the work of your school board. Invite them out for coffee. Ask how you might help support your local neighborhood schools. Write your school board members a thank you note. Let them know you appreciate what they do for students in Lunenburg County.

Lunenburg County School Board members include, Barry Carnes, Kathy Coffee, Ada Whitehead, Doug Aubel, Beverly Hawthorne, Elizabeth Williams, and Amy McClure.
