The 2020–2021 school year is going to be different for every district in New York. Whether schools reopen in person or online-only – or some hybrid of the two – school counselors will be required to constantly innovate, acclimate, adjust and support both students and school community.
As we begin to discover this new process please feel free to come to visit WPRCA for resources.

In these times of remote learning, we are all learning new ways to interact and connect with our students. Many of you may have heard of a "Bitmoji Classroom," which is a useful way to deliver a lot of counseling content in a fun and interactive way for the students. They can either be put on your school's counseling webpage, or even on Google Classroom and Microsoft Teams. I have found an easy to follow tutorial on YouTube, that I actually used to create mine earlier this summer. Please see the link below and feel free to share and show off your creations on our Facebook page!
