  • Good Morning ! Today is part of National School Counseling Week. Today’s message is about #goals. The definition of goal is” the object of a person’s ambition or effort; an aim or desired result.” You can establish goals for every area of your life: as a student, friend, daughter or son, sibling and member of society. Goals can be short term (like dedicating 20 minutes each day to physical exercise to maintain your health and wellness) or long term (like studying and working hard to become an architect) In the words of famed box, Muhammad Ali, “What keeps me going is goals.” Have you given thought about your life goals? Your counselors would love to hear about them. Come by one of their offices! Make today count!
