February 4-8 is Counselor Appreciation Week!

This week we will enjoy celebrating and appreciating Sheila Wessels and Stephanie Winfrey for their work as Counselors at Hill School.

In 2005, the Texas School Counselor Association began a program called CREST to recognize schools with outstanding counseling programs. This year, 101 schools will be recognized for excellence in school counseling. CREST stands for Counselors Reinforcing Excellence for Students in Texas.

Schools receiving CREST awards have demonstrated a commitment using the school guidance and counseling program to improve the lives and achievement of students in academic, career, and personal social domains.

Congratulations to Sheila Wessels and Stephanie Winfrey from Hill Elementary School in the Austin Independent School District for being one of a group of only 101 schools from across the state to win the CREST Award for Counseling Excellence for 2018-2019.
