National School Counseling Week 2021, “School Counselors: All in for All Students,” sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), is being celebrated from February 1–5, 2021, to focus public attention on the unique contribution of school counselors within U.S. school systems and how students are different as a result of what school counselors do. National School Counseling Week highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.

“This 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,” said Marshall County Schools Superintendent Dr. Shelby Haines who signed the proclamation designating this week as National School Counseling Week.

In a proclamation, Dr. Haines cited 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’ academic, postsecondary and social/emotional 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. School counselors are certified, experienced educators with a master’s degree in school 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, postsecondary options and social/emotional skills,” said Jill Cook, ASCA executive director. “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.”

More than 100,000 school counselors nationwide will be participating in the week’s festivities. Many schools will be hosting special events and activities to call attention to the countless benefits of a comprehensive school counseling program.

Parents or community members with specific questions about school counseling programs should contact the school counselors at their child’s school. More general information can also be found on ASCA’s website, www.schoolcounselor.org.

Electronic Forms at MCS

9-11-20 Tweet about FinalForms

Marshall County parents now have an option to use electronic forms for beginning of the year forms and athletic forms.  MCS purchased FinalForms for our schools, parents, and students to use for the 20-21 school year. 

A parent can create an account which will then be used to associate their child with them.  After filling out the form with basic contact information, the information can be used for multiple children without having to enter all the information again.  And next year, the information will still be there so student registration and updating of information will be even faster.
