October is National Bullying Prevention Month. We want to join together as a community to prevent bullying and make positive changes. Here at PALCS, we create a safe environment both virtually and on-site, where we have zero tolerance for bullying.
Happy National School Counseling Week 2018! This special week, wrapping up today, is sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA). Taking place from February 5th to February 9th this year, the purpose of the week is to focus public attention on the unique contribution of professional school counselors within the U.S. and highlight the substantial impact school counselors have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career. The theme this year is "School Counselors: Helping Students Reach for the Stars."
This past week marked 2017’s National School Counseling Week! Taking place from February 6th to February 10th, this special week celebrates the work of dedicated school counselors in schools across the United States. On Friday, February 10th, PALCS showed their support and appreciation for the PALCS Guidance department and counselors by participating in "College-Wear Day." Faculty and students were asked to sport their college pride in an effort to get students thinking about their options for the future.
