This week’s shout out goes to our wonderful HSSD Counselors, who work at each of our schools to ensure the academic goals, social/personal development, and even career development opportunities are identified and met by students. This dedicated team works hand-in-hand with our teachers and leadership to make sure we aren’t only an institution of academic excellence, but also one that provides the social guidance and extra attention to the individual needs of students necessary to send our kids on pathways to becoming well-adjusted, productive, and confident adults. We deeply appreciate all that you do: Denise Ludlow, Angela Millard, Cheryl Stafford, Jerry Scroggins, Renee Tester, Leslie Whalen, Katelyn Walker, Amy Snider, Brittany George, and Dawn Anderson. You all truly help to make HSSD “A Place for Everyone.”  Find the official proclamation from Governor Hutchinson declaring this week National School Counselor’s Week across Arkansas, here.


I also want to share a shout out from a guest from the EAST Initiative Phase Training Team, who recently visited our HSJA. She said via email: “ I had the opportunity to visit the Junior Academy EAST program last week and I wanted to share some “glows” with you. I was happy to see a variety of projects the students were developing.  Not every program is that diverse in project types and it speaks highly of Ms. Ham and your administration for your support of the program. I was most impressed with the passion I saw when talking to the students. Adrian and his music, Mimi with her Arduino data collector,  and the students working on the various poultry projects, to name a few. Those kids were driven and it is because you all have fostered that through facilitation and opportunities. It is organized chaos in Ms. Ham's class, and at first glance, it seems haphazard, but student growth is buzzing in the program at your school and I wanted to share that win with you.”
