Theme of the Month
National School Counselor Week
National School Counseling Week 2021 (#NSCW21), "School Counselors: All In for All Students," will be celebrated from Feb. 1-5, 2021, to focus public attention on the unique contribution of school counselors within U.S. school systems.
Kindness is a type of behavior marked by acts of generosity, consideration, or concern for others, without expecting praise or reward.
In the month of February we challenge all, big and small to sprinkle kindness everywhere you go. Post pictures of your school family sprinkling kindness and tag the Duncanville ISD Counseling Department FB page or Duncanville ISD’s Counseling Twitter page no later than 4:00 p.m. on February 19th.
