School Psychology Awareness Week 2016

School Psychology Awareness Week (SPAW) is November 14-18, 2016. The theme is Small Steps Change Lives. Our goal is to highlight how taking small steps can build greater successes and develops the academic and social-emotional skills students need to promote personal achievement, growth, and resilience, as well as a sense of belonging and wellbeing. Resources and messaging can be adapted to students and adults, different age groups, and multiple contexts. The program involves a series of resources and suggested activities to help school staff, students and parents understand the variety of factors that contribute to thriving students and school communities.
