    Kettle Moraine School Counselors Recognized During National School Counseling Week

    THANK YOU, KMSD SCHOOL COUNSELORS!
    The Kettle Moraine School District’s mission of cultivating academic excellence, personal development and citizenship is supported in many ways by a team of dedicated school counselors. This week, they are being recognized during National School Counseling Week, sponsored by the American School Counselor Association.
     
    National School Counseling Week focuses the public’s attention on the unique contribution of professional school counselors within U.S. schools, and how students are different as a result of the work counselors do. The rockstar counselors throughout KMSD have a tremendous impact on helping students to be successful at school and in life.
     
    Professional school counselors are certified, experienced educators with master's degrees in counseling. They are actively engaged in a variety of activities to support students. These include helping students examine their abilities, strengths, interests and talents; working in partnership with parents as they encounter the challenges of raising children in today's world; 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 goals.
