The theme of this year’s School Counseling Celebration was: CCS School Counselors: Professionals Who Exemplify GRIT (Generating Relentless Inner Toughness).  This theme was determined because school counselors are an integral influence in helping our students build resilience and GRIT.  In addition, the role of the school counselor requires just what the words stands for Generating Relentless Inner Toughness.  Every school counselor experiences good and bad throughout their days, but no matter what they have to keep going and pushing through.  Whether it be a child who is depressed and hurting themselves to a student earning a scholarship and getting into college.  Overall, the school counselor is a constant solid that is there to help support and fight for each and every student.
