School Psychology Awareness Week (SPAW) 2019

School Psychology Awareness Week (SPAW) is November 11-15, 2019.  This year's theme is "Find Your Focus," which can have a variety of meanings such as paying attention, being able to see an idea more clearly, identifying an area of interest, or being persistent and determined in one’s effort. Focusing can help us set goals, identify action steps, communicate needs, and engage in discussions that help create the connections necessary for students to develop critical academic and social emotional skills.  

Find Your Focus

Regardless of how you use it, this poster can inspire all school personnel to help students thrive.
