Hi there… I hope you and your family had a restful and enjoyable holiday season, and that your new year is off to a great start. Attached is the January edition of “Counselor’s Corner,” which your students have heard about in Advisory. Check out the incredible opportunities and events available to your student in and around our community. You can also find this newsletter on the NVHS website under counseling. I hope you find it helpful!
