Let’s Get in GEAR because #SchoolPsychWeek is coming our way!
During the week of November 8–12, 2021 schools throughout the country will celebrate National School Psychology Week to highlight the important work school psychologists do to help students thrive.
The theme for this year is “Let’s Get in GEAR” (Grow, Engage, Advocate, Rise). According to nasponline.org, “the theme’s acronym provides a challenge to grow both personally and professionally. It encourages us to engage in best practices and advocate for children’s access to mental health and learning supports. To rise implies resilience and renewal despite the challenges of the past. When we get in gear, we move together. When we move together, there is a positive synergy that builds and becomes greater than any single effort. We grow together, we engage critical systems, and we advocate and rise together.”
You can visit the NASP website for an excellent selection of adaptable resources to help you during School Psychology Awareness Week and your work around the year to help schools and students thrive.
