-Plan a celebration, this year at my school there were 3 interns so I assigned each grade level a breakfast item to bring (muffins, doughnuts, juice, flowers, plates, cups/napkins, utensils, biscuits, flowers, etc) and we had a breakfast for our interns.
|JYJ Interns, congrats ladies!|
-School supplies! You know that you have extra school supplies laying around your house and counselor office. Pens, notebook paper, folders, crayons, you name it, I probably had 3 or 4 sets of them.
-Personalized note cards, I am a HUGE fan of bringing back a letter writing campaign. Writing notes to students, parents and staff especially when someone does something nice for you is a must for me. I ordered note cards from Vistaprint. Also from Vistaprint I ordered a confidentiality poster and a welcome to the school counselor's office banner.
-Personalized binder covers, I found (free) printables on Pinterest (click on the link).
-A counselor bag, of course! I ordered a SCOUT multi-pocket tote from Amazon (I had to stop myself from ordering one for myself).
-Where's the counselor sign (taken from a previous post, printable in the post)
Here's the finished gift:

Each year I'm excited to work with a energetic and excited intern and at the end of the year I'm always sad to see them leave, but glad to know that I had an opportunity to learn and them learn from me. Congrats Kelly and to all counselor interns graduating! Pin It
