School Psychology Awareness Week 2019

"Find Your Focus"

November 11-15, 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.

Another great way to raise awareness of school psychology is through social media. By posting a link to the NASP or OSPA website or this link which explains what a school psychologist is to Facebook or Twitter you are raising awareness of your important professional role among potentially hundreds of friends, acquaintances, readers, and followers.

Spread the word!

Here are some resources for you to use:

Governor DeWine's proclamation
NASP resources to celebrate School Psychology Awareness Week 2019
Sample SPAW Press Release
Sample letter to families
Sample letter to districts

Enjoy this special week and take time to celebrate all the wonderful work you do for children and families!
