Happy National Social Work Month and School Social Work Week!

Dear PSD Community,

This month is the National Social Work Month and this week is National School Social Work Week!   We are proud of the work that our many School Social Workers do each day to support students with mental health needs throughout the district.  The national theme is “Social Workers are Essential” and we certainly agree with this theme!  Our School Social Workers provide essential services to our students each day through the school year.

School social workers bring unique knowledge and skills to the school system. School Social Workers are trained mental health professionals who can assist with mental health concerns, behavioral concerns, positive behavioral support, academic, and classroom support, consultation with teachers, parents, and administrators as well as provide individual and group counseling/therapy.  School social workers are instrumental in furthering the mission of the schools which is to provide a setting for teaching, learning, and for the attainment of competence and confidence. School social workers are hired by school districts to enhance the district’s ability to meet its academic mission, especially where home, school and community collaboration is the key to achieving student success.

School Social Workers… thank you for your tireless effort to ensure students’ emotional, social and educational needs are met.

Take a moment to thank and celebrate your School Social Worker!

Sincerely,

Sarah
