Greetings!  

 

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year. It is so nice to see our staff and student’s faces again as we embark on what we hope to be a traditional school year.  Last year was challenging, to say the least.  However, you all showed up and persevered with all the new challenges that came your way.  

 

Once again, we are back to do the work that we all love and our association is here to support each other.  There are many events planned for this school year and you are encouraged to attend as many as possible.  We also encourage you to invite other county counselors to join our association.  The executive board heard some of the concerns and we decided to alternate the meeting days (as opposed to all Wednesdays or Thursdays, etc.) to provide an opportunity for counselors to plan around your own busy schedules. 

 

Our first event will be a “Meet and Greet” on Friday, September 30, 2022 at Calandra’s Village at 234 Bloomfield Ave. Caldwell, NJ 07006 from 3:45pm- 7:00pm.  This is a great opportunity to come out and learn about our association while socializing with counselors throughout the county.  Berkeley College is graciously hosting our first general membership meeting on Wednesday October 19, 2022 at Solar de Minho, Belleville, NJ. Please RSVP here:ECSCA Meet & Greet RSVP

 

The tentative dates for the remainder of the year’s events are:

Wednesday, December 7, 2022

Tuesday, March 21, 2023

Thursday, May 18, 2023

 

Counselors for the Community - We will be following in ECSCA Past President’s, Greg Jenkins, footsteps and continuing with Counselors for the Community. Each month we ask that each member bring an item for donation to a non-profit facility in need.

 

Elementary School Counselors - In efforts to support our elementary school counselors more this year, we would like to bring back morning breakfast meetings - The Breakfast Club.These meetings will be hosted at various elementary schools in Essex County and ECSCA will supply a light continental breakfast for those who would like to attend. If you would like to host at your school building, please let us know.

 

We look forward to collaborating and exchanging ideas with each other throughout the year.  Wishing you all a successful, exciting and fun school year.

 

 

Best,

 

Isabelle Ramirez, President

2020 Essex County Counselor of the County
