Greetings graduating students! Graduation day will be here before we know it, and it would be really nice to get everyone together one last time before the big day to celebrate all of our hard work! The School Counseling department is working to put together a graduating party, but the time and date of the event is pending. Tuesday, May 21 from 7-9pm is a time when many students are likely to be available, but nothing is set in stone as of yet. Before we finalize the event, it would be great if people indicated their availability. You can do so by commented directly on this post or by e-mailing Jessica Brainsky at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks so much! Looking forward to celebrating with everyone!
In response to the tragic events yesterday, the school counseling faculty are here to support you in any way possible. UMass Boston has an incredible counseling center that serves students. Please reach out to me (Laura) if you need anything.
Awesome job at the MASCA conference this weekend! Pictures are to come!
