Celebrating

School Psychology Awareness Week 2016!


November 14-18, 2016

School psychologists around the state celebrated NASP's School Psychology Awareness Week.

This year's theme, Small Steps Change Lives, reminds us that the small gains that we help students make each day have a huge impact! 



Check out the many ways that we celebrated SPAW 2016!

Cecil County school psychologists provided school staff with a SPAW theme pencil, a note of thanks, and opportunities to use NASP SPAW note cards to thank colleagues for helping students make Small Steps.
