HISD Counseling and Student Support Department

If an HISD school counselor has ever helped you or your family to calm an anxious student, console a grieving child, or help with plans for college success, then take a moment to thank him or her. February 6–10 is National School Counseling Week, and the theme this year is “School Counselors: Helping students realize their potential.”

National School Counseling Week, sponsored by the American School Counselor Association, highlights the contributions that school counselors make in helping students achieve success and prepare for college and careers.

Please join HISD in recognizing the unique contribution to the academic success and personal well-being of our students that district counselors make each and every day. Share photos and posts on social media using #NSCW17 and #HISDcounselors.
