    WCSD School Counseling Mission Statement
     
    The WCSD School Counseling program supports students socially, emotionally, and academically to enhance school achievement, to ensure all students reach their full potential; become productive members of our community and are lifelong learners.
     
    In the Wappingers Central School District, the School Counseling Department works to ensure a safe learning environment that promotes tolerance and acceptance of all students. Counselors serve as a resource for students, parents, and teachers alike, helping to address some of the everyday challenges facing our students. Together, counselors work in collaboration with students and parents to ensure student success in the areas of academics, career planning, and personal goal setting.
     
    The goal of the JJHS School Counseling Department is to foster the personal, social, and academic growth of each of our students. While doing well academically is of the utmost importance, it is also important that our students grow to be responsible, caring and educated citizens of society. Each of the school counselors is committed to helping each student perform to the best of their academic ability and to encourage a positive school experience.

  •  CHAMPLAIN COLLEGE YOUNG WRITERS CONFERENCE
      Let Your Badger Out

    Dear NY Educator; Last year, thirty-two emerging writers from your state attended the CCYW Conference. We are again hoping to reach students & parents with the information below. Thank you!

    Dear High-Stepping Daughters & Sons of the Word Road,

    You are once again cordially invited to attend a weekend of writing workshops, craft sessions, and open mic at the CHAMPLAIN COLLEGE YOUNG WRITERS' CONFERENCE, MAY 24-26. Now in our nineteenth year, our doors are open to high school students who wish to share their passion for story, drama, and song with their writerly brothers and sisters—and with celebrated New England authors. We offer three days of readings, improv, Moth storytelling, poetry slams, literary jazz/blues fusion, and extended friendship on the hillside campus of Champlain College in Burlington, Vermont.

    OUR 2019 KEYNOTE SPEAKER IS AWARD-WINNING SINGER, SONGWRITER, & COMPOSER, MOIRA SMILEY. Moira's work can be heard on BBC TV & radio, NPR, PBS, ABC Australia's Books & Arts, in feature films, and on more than sixty albums. She performs regularly with her group, VOCO, and has toured with leading artists around the world—including tUnE-yArDs, Paul Hillier's Theater of Voices, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, KITKA, the Irish super-group Solas, grammy-winning pianist, Billy Childs, The Lomax Project, and the New World Symphony. Recent solo performances include TED, Stravinsky's Les Noces, and the London Proms Festival. In 2018, Moira released her latest solo album and choral songbook, Unzip The Horizon, and an upcoming concert at Carnegie Hall will be devoted to her work.

    The APPLICATION DEADLINE of March 8 is fast approaching and the blue lights are flashing. If you have a tale to spin, or a story to share, please visit our website: http://www.champlain.edu/write
