When I started at the campus I am at, I wanted to be a lil' beacon of positivity and help. I never wanted to say no to taking on a task or helping someone in need. Yet, after awhile people thought it was okay to interrupt counseling sessions which equals no bueno to me or my students. So I quickly created a cute door poster that I attached ribbon to so I could easily flip over outside my door. It has made a world of difference. I have two options! One from last year and one from this year!

Another way that helps me in my counseling program is to give out appointment cards. I was using some cute lil cards I had made on vista print but after awhile it was easier to just print some. I don't have to use them too much because most of my regulars automatically come at their day and time but just in case...I give them these reminders. I had originally made it smaller but kids kept losing them and for some reason have kept up with this size. Only bummer is they print two to a page but like I said I haven't had to use them for all my students.
I don't know about all you other sweet counselors out there but I am enjoying my last couple of days of winter break! I head back Monday! Have a wonderful weekend and don't forget to follow Stylish School Counselor on blogger and on facebook!
