February 1-5 is National School Counseling Week

School Counseling Week is a time to recognize the school counseling profession, but Mrs. Harris and Mrs. Brown have taken it a step further and have planned several activities for you to participate in throughout the week in hopes of spicing up an otherwise ordinary week of school.


This year’s theme is “School Counselors: Serving up the Recipe for Success”. Your school counselors are here to do whatever they can to help you be successful in middle school and in the years to follow. Along with the administrators at East Lee, Mrs. Harris and Mrs. Brown have come up with the 5 key ingredients to success. Listen carefully to the announcements each morning as a new ingredient is revealed. Also, listen up for a daily trivia question. Answer the question as a homeroom, send your answer to a counselor, and be in the running to win a prize! Visit the mini-booth in the front office for more School Counseling Week activities. Enjoy!


The AVID commitee will be selling Flower-Grams next week. (February 1st to February 5th). The carnations will be $2.00 each.
Ask your homeroom teacher for more information.
