Power Up, Be A Positive Charge!


School Psychology Awareness Week (SPAW) 2017 is November 13-17. The NASP Presidential Theme is Power Up, Be A Positive Charge!

From NASP: 

"Our goal is to highlight how taking a small positive action creates connections that lead to positive change, builds 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 well-being. 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 families understand the variety of factors that contribute to thriving students and school communities."

Many resources are available on NASP 2017 SPAW webpage
