Let's Celebrate School Social Workers!
National School Social Work Week is the perfect opportunity to not only celebrate school social workers, but also a great opportunity to educate others and your community about the impact a school social worker has on the students they serve.
Mark your calendars for National School Social Work Week: March 5-11, 2017!
SSWAA has collected and put together resources to help you celebrate wherever you are. Be sure to let your districts know so that they can promote it on their school calendars too.
We hope you will make some great plans to celebrate as well as receive much deserved recognition for the critical role that you provide to students, administrators, teachers, educators, parents and the community! Happy School Social Work Week!!!
RESOURCES FOR SCHOOL SOCIAL WORK WEEK
On March 4, 2015 Representative Gwen Moore (D-WI) introduced Congressional Resolution H. RES. 146, "Expressing support for designation of the week of March 1, 2015, through March 7, 2015, as School Social Work Week.” Rep, Moore continues to be a "Champion" of School Social Work. See her "Dear Colleague Letter" from 2013.
In 2013 SSWAA sent letters to the 50 State Governors asking them to declare School Social Work Week in their state. Since then we have provided tools for states to secure their own proclamations which we have posted as we receive them. We encourage your state to request new Proclamations and send for posting Contactus@sswaa.org.
