Celebrating National School Social Work Week 2023

Join us in celebrating our Facilitators of Family Outreach (FFOs), Juvenile Court Officer, and Coordinator of Student, Family & Community Resources during National School Social Work Week March 5–11, 2023. The theme for National School Social Work Week is “We Rise.” School Social Workers rise up—supporting our students, families, and school communities. School Social Workers rise to share hope. They rise to listen and understand. They rise to support all students.

Please reach out to your social work team and share your appreciation for the countless ways they go above and beyond in supporting students and families. We are truly fortunate to work alongside this exceptional group of professionals. #SSWweek2023 #thankful4U
