Happy School Social Work Week

Dear Editor,
March 4th-10 is School Social Work Week.
School social workers are the liaisons for our families to help their students succeed.
They address the social and psychological issues that can block academic progress through counseling, crisis intervention, prevention programs, and utilizing the community’s resources.
School social workers help young people overcome the difficulties in their lives and give them a better chance at succeeding in school.
They assist their fellow school personnel with addressing environmental and family issues that affect our students to help keep students learning in the classroom.
School social workers are truly the vital link between home, school, and the community.
Be sure to thank your school social worker for all they do for the students, teachers, and community.
Happy School Social Work Week! 
Laura Foster,
Kansas School Social Work,
Association president,
