                                2020 School Social Work Week - March 1-7, 2020

The School Social Work Association of America is proud to promote National School Social Work Week, held the first full calendar week of March (Sunday - Saturday).  SSWAA collects and shares resources to help you celebrate and promote School Social Work Week. We hope you will make some great plans to celebrate as well as receive much-deserved recognition for the vital role that you provide to students, administrators, teachers, educators, parents, and the community!

 

“Beacon of Hope: School Social Workers – Lighting the Way” is our theme for School Social Work Week 2020.  In our role, School Social Workers are able to light the way, emphasizing the whole child, collaborating with other professionals, linking students and families with needed services, and advocating for our profession.   We hope that you will find these resources useful.  Please feel free to use them all or pick and choose what is beneficial to you and your district.  We invite you to follow us on social media and share throughout the week as well.  We hope you have a successful School Social Work Week 2020!  #BeaconofHope #SSWWeek2020

 

Enjoy and hope you have a Happy School Social Work Week!!!
