National School Counseling Week

Sample Morning Announcements

Good morning. This is [insert name], your school counselor, and today is part

of “National School Counseling Week.” Our focus for the week is “Liberty and

Learning for All.”

You might wonder what that means. Liberty is defined as “the power

of choosing, thinking, and acting for oneself.” And learning means to gain

knowledge through systematic study. So this week we will talk about how

you can be responsible for your own learning and behavior here at school and at home with friends, parents and teachers.

It’s not always easy to be responsible. Every day there are distractions and roadblocks — tough classes, peer pressure, friendship problems, social media, family concerns and more. My job is to help each of you overcome those obstacles to reach your full potential and learn how to be responsible for your learning and your life. That’s what school counselors do: We help.

Come by and talk to me soon.

Good morning. This is [insert name], and today is part of “National School Counseling Week.” The message today is about choosing your attitude and how that attitude can shape your future.

The inventor Thomas Edison once said, “Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but by how we react to what happens, not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. … There are two types of people: those who fear failure so they never try, and those who fear failure so they never quit.

Abraham Lincoln, our 16th president, faced great struggles with a divided country during the Civil War. But he had great determination and a never give up attitude. “Always bear in mind,” said the man responsible for ending slavery, “that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.” A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. To use Edison’s words, it is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results. As your school counselor, I’m here to help you find your spark.

Good morning. This is [insert name], and today is part of “National School Counseling Week.” Today’s message is about developing the right habits that point you in the in the right direction.

The great philosopher Aristotle said, “Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” Think about the choices you make every day. Are you on the right path? Are you doing the things that will help you succeed in school? Are you going to class, doing your homework, listening to your teachers, getting rest and exercise? Are you maintaining a healthy lifestyle?

These things are critical to your future success. Frank Outlaw, a man you probably don’t know, once said something very wise: “Watch your thoughts, they become words. Watch your words; they become actions.

Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.” Good morning. This is [insert name]. Today is part of “National School Counseling Week.” Our message today is about acting with compassion. As Aesop, the famous ancient storyteller, once said, “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” We all know people who are selfish, who seem to think only of themselves. We see this in children who pout over candy and toys, in classmates who behave in an ugly or dismissive way when they walk in the school hallways, and in corporate CEOs who value greed.

http://www.quoteland.com/share/Aesop-Quotes/4921/The author Dean Koontz once said, “Some people think only intellect counts: knowing how to solve problems, knowing how to get by, knowing how to identify an advantage and seize it. But the functions of intellect are insufficient without courage, love, friendship, compassion, and empathy.” Remember: It’s the random acts of kindness that often can make the biggest difference in a person’s life. As your school counselor, I can help you deal with the challenges you face and help point you in the right direction, and I will do so with kindness.

Good morning. This is [insert name]. Today is part of “National School Counseling Week.” Our final message focuses on how we deal with change.

Change is constant in today’s world, and it can be difficult to keep up with at times when life seems to be moving so fast. But by making the right choices, by being determined and persistent and motivated, you can do it.

You can be the change you wish to see in this world.

As the rock band Journey put it, “Don’t stop believing.” Harriet Tubman once said, “Every great dream begins with a dreamer.

Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” Your teachers are here to help. Your principal is, too. And when you need someone who will listen that you can trust, remember that your school counselor is always here for you.

Thanks to all the students and staff for helping to make this a great week. Now let’s all work together to be the change.

Good morning. This is [insert name], your school counselor, and today is the first day of “National School Counseling Week.” I’d like to talk about “being brilliant.” This does not just mean brilliance in your schoolwork and the grades that you get. You also can be brilliant in how you treat people and the world you live in.





It is not easy growing up in today’s world. Every day, distractions and other things can keep you from being brilliant — tough classes, peer pressure, friendship problems, depression, and more. My job is to help each of you reach your full potential and be successful. That’s what school counselors do: We help. Come by and talk to me soon.

____________________________________________________________

Good morning. This is [insert name], and today is the second day of “National School Counseling Week.” The message today is about resilience. Chances are, if you want to be brilliant, you must also be resilient.

Have you ever had a brilliant idea and wondered why it didn’t work out? Even the best ideas present you with challenges. People who are resilient are able to overcome those challenges and turn them into successes.

Have you ever heard the phrase, “If at first you don’t succeed, try try again”? When you are confronted with a challenge, your ability to “try try again” is resilience in action.

As your school counselor, I’m here to help you develop your resilience. It could be about anything that is giving you trouble. Don’t quit — come see me instead and let’s talk through the challenges together.

Good morning. This is [insert name], and today is the third day of “National School Counseling Week.” Today’s message is about curiosity and the power of connections.

Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple, encouraged people to “think different.” Ten years ago, Jobs knew that computers were not the only key to Apple’s future success.

Success to help was in developing tools that allow us to connect — to our music, our pictures, to the Internet, and to others. Born from his curiosity and desire to connect were the the iPhone, the iPad, the iPod, and iTunes.

As your school counselor, I want to encourage you to be curious, to “think different.” There is much to be learned from the brilliance that is in each of you.

Good morning. This is [insert name]. Today is the fourth day of “National School Counseling Week.” Our message today takes a look at who helped Dorothy in “The Wizard of Oz.” The Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion all needed something that was missing from their lives — a brain, a heart, the nerve. The thing they all had in common was character.

As the story progresses, you see how their character helps them overcome what is missing in their lives. By refusing to abandon their friend in the face of the Wicked Witch of the West, their character helps them ultimately get what they need.

Maya Angelou, the famous American poet, once said: "One isn't necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can't be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest."

Do you have the courage to be brilliant? Do you have the character? As your school counselor, I can help you develop those skills — and others, too — that will help you to be successful.

____________________________________________________________

Good morning. This is [insert name]. Today is the final day of “National School Counseling Week.” Our final message focuses on “what matters.” Actor Matt Damon said recently: “I think what’s important for kids to know is your decisions here on earth matter. Your behavior matters. How you treat other people matters.” What you do in school, at home, and in other places makes a difference in your life and in the lives of others. It might be as simple as holding the door open for someone, or as complex as writing a great story or inventing a new way of computing. No matter how big or how small, what you do matters.

In Oh, the Places You’ll Go, Dr. Seuss writes: “You'll get mixed up, of course, as you already know. You'll get mixed up with many strange birds as you go. So be sure when you step. Step with care and great tact and remember that Life's a Great Balancing Act. Just never forget to be dexterous and deft. And never mix up your right foot with your left.” Thanks to all the students and staff for helping to make this a great week.

Good morning. This is [insert name], your school counselor, and today is part of “National School Counseling Week.” You may not know this, but my job is to work with each of you to help you be successful in school and in life so you can build the future want, I know that sometimes roadblocks get in the way of your plans – things like peer pressure, friendship issues, family problems and difficulty at school. When you veer off the path, come and see me. I am here to help you deal with the challenges and frustrations that keep you from being the best you can be. That’s what school counselors do. We help you build the future you want.

Make it a great day!

Good morning. This is [insert name], your school counselor, and today is part of “National School Counseling Week.” What do you think success is? What does it look like for you? Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher said success “is a mixture of having a flair for the thing that you are doing; knowing that it is not enough, that you have got to have hard work and a certain sense of purpose.” Did you know that school counselors can help you find your pathway to success?

Some people think school counselors are only there for “those” kids, but my job is to help all of you reach your full potential and be successful in school and life. Every day, you face challenges – tough classes, peer pressure, family and friendship problems, and more – that can be roadblocks to future success. I can help you deal with these challenges. That’s what school counselors do. Come by, and talk to me soon.

Good morning. This is [insert name], and today is part of “National School Counseling Week.” I have a question for each of you: What is one of the biggest keys to your future success?

Have high expectations.

Michael Jordan once said, “You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them.” If you want to go to college, do the things now that will get you there – go to class, do your homework, listen to your teachers, get plenty of rest and exercise, maintain a healthy lifestyle, and surround yourself with others who have high expectations.

As Mark Twain said, “It is small people who try to belittle your ambitions. The great ones help you to feel that you can become great.” Expect more from yourself. Experience success. Settle for nothing less.

Good morning. I am [insert name], your school counselor, and today is part of “National School Counseling Week.” What traits do you think are important to be successful in life and build a bright future for yourself? Good character?

Organizational ability? Kindness? Those are all very important but what about perseverance?

According to the dictionary, perseverance means “steady persistence in adhering to a course of action, a belief, or a purpose; steadfastness.” Have you ever shown perseverance and gone on even when you thought you couldn’t?

Former basketball star Michael Jordon knows a thing or two about it. Listen to what

he has to say:

“In ninth grade, my dream was to beat my brother Larry at a game of one-on-one.

He’d beat me every time ad I’d get mad. In tenth grade, my dream was to make the varsity basketball team, but I didn’t, and I had to play junior varsity all year. When I look back on those experiences, I know they must have built determination in me.” Michael did not give up. He kept practicing until he achieved success. You can do the same. Just when you think an assignment is too hard or a sport too difficult or a book too long, hang in there. Keep at it.

Perseverance pays off.

Good morning. I am [insert name], your school counselor, and today is part of “National School Counseling Week.” One of the most important things you can do to build for your future is to take your education seriously. Author and activist Malcolm X said, “Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.” How are you preparing for your future? You can begin by coming to school, listening to your teachers, turning in assignments. Small steps bring big rewards.

Let education become your passport to a world of possibilities.

Make it a great day!

Good morning. I am [insert name], your school counselor, and today is part of “National School Counseling Week.” Today’s tip is on the value of persistence.
