School Psychology Awareness Week 2017
Governor Ducey School Psychology Awareness Week Proclamation
Power Up! Be a Positive Charge

(Gilbert, Arizona) -- Governor Doug Ducey has declared November 13 - 17, 2017, School Psychology Awareness Week in recognition to the vital role that school psychologists play in meeting individual needs of students by supporting their schools and their families.

This week, the U.S. observes School Psychology Awareness Week. This year’s theme is Power Up! Be a Positive Charge.

The goal of observing this week 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.
