Bellport High School and the District celebrated National School Counseling Week during the week of Feb. 4-8. Sponsored by the American School Counselor Association, National School Counseling Week calls attention to the tremendous contributions school counselors make in assisting students to achieve their educational goals and to plan for their future careers.

Each morning, student activity quotes were broadcast on the school monitor highlighting one thing a school counselor has done for a student. Art Department Chairperson Suzette Fandale created a “Happy National School Counseling Week” poster for the central lobby to welcome visitors and students. School counselor Jenna Restivo also developed a new guidance brochure to be distributed to the board of education, the central administration office and to juniors and their families during individual Junior Planning Conferences. In addition, counselors promoted a schoolwide Random Acts of Kindness Week, promoting kind deeds throughout the week and during grade-level assemblies for students in grades 9-12.
