"Counselors are the sugar in the lemonade of life." In celebration of National School Counseling Week (NSCW), Raising Canes in Gonzales donated lemonade and cups at G.W. Carver Primary on Feb. 9. All faculty and staff were served a cup of lemonade as a refresher toward the end of the day and to promote awareness of what counselors do. NSCW was celebrated the week of Feb. 6, 2017, to focus public attention on the unique contribution of school counselors.  In Ascension Parish, school counselors used this week to advocate for their profession and thank coworkers and students.
