I want to give a huge shoutout to our School Counselors for the outstanding work that they do all year long. They are an invaluable asset to our team, and their profession is honored across the country this week for National School Counselor Week (Look for our high school Counselors to be featured in the Sentinel Record over the weekend for this very topic)! Their skills and dedicated efforts are threaded into every area of need in a school - whether they are taking care of kids academically or emotionally, working with us on building and changing student schedules, helping to handle logistics of any kind as we shuffle students throughout the day, helping students to plan and make priorities/goals for their future, collaborating to provide mindful solutions for student and family challenges as we work to keep kids focused and motivated, and so many more duties and responsibilities. Thank you to our professional, passionate Counselor Team: 
Hot Springs World Class High School: Dawn Anderson, Amy Snider, and Brittany George;

Hot Springs Junior Academy: Katelyn Walker and Jerry Scroggins;

Langston Elementary Leadership Academy: Denise Ludlow;

Gardner STEM Elementary School: Angela Millard;

Oaklawn Visual & Performing Arts Magnet School: Cheryl Stafford and Leslie Whalen;

Park Magnet, an IB World School: Renee Tester.


Also, I have an anonymous shoutout to share about our Langston students … ”Langston students during the month of January participated in the giving tree. Langston students were able to give back just as the community gives to them. During the month of January students gathered donations of travel size items to be sent to our military. One student brought in around 500 items on his own!”
