November 13–17 is National School Psychology Awareness Week!
This year's theme is "Power Up! Be a Positive Charge." The goal is to highlight how taking a small positive action can create momentum for positive change. The idea is that a small spark—a new skill, a piece of knowledge, an extra effort, a kind gesture—can create the connections necessary for students to develop critical academic and social–emotional skills. Sparks can include action words such as dream, laugh, connect, imagine, create, encourage, share, listen, help, explore, try, and speak up. Students can be both the recipients and conduits of a positive charge that generates personal achievement, growth and resilience, and sense of belonging and community.
Thank your school psychologist for all the work he or she does to help our students and families thrive! Pictured are the school psychologists serving schools in Douglas County.
