Mayor Declares February 5-9 National School Counseling Week

Counseling Week

In coordination with Erin Craven, Malden Public Schools Director of School Counseling, Testing & Academic Support, Mayor Gary Christenson officially proclaimed February 5-9 National School Counseling Week. Sponsored by the American School Counselor Association, National School Counseling Week highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping student be successful in school and plan for their future.

School counseling plays a pivotal role in fostering the development and well-being of students, transcending the traditional role of academic guidance. As educational institutions navigate the complex terrain of modern challenges, the importance of school counseling has become increasingly evident. Beyond assisting students in academic planning and course selection, counselors serve as advocates for mental health, providing invaluable support to students grappling with emotional distress, anxiety, or personal struggles. School counseling also plays a pivotal role in facilitating post-secondary transitions and career exploration. 

More than 25 school counselors were in attendance along with School Committee member Jennifer Spadafora and Superintendent Ligia Noriega-Murphy as the Mayor officially thanked them for their important work in the district and issued a Proclamation on behalf of the City.
