Celebrating National School Psychology Week

Posted November 12, 2020

During the week of November 9–13, 2020 schools throughout the country will celebrate National School Psychology Week to highlight the important work school psychologists and other educators do to help all students thrive.

This year's theme is "The Power of Possibility," which conveys hope, growth, resilience, and renewal. Possibility suggests that even something as small as a seed can grow into something magnificent. Henry David Thoreau wrote, “I have great faith in a seed. Convince me that you have a seed there, and I am prepared to expect great wonders.” The word “power” implies that things can and will happen. When we focus on what is possible, we have hope that students will grow, thrive, and bloom and will be empowered to take the action steps necessary to do so.

Our hope is to connect with students and staff to highlight how focusing on possibilities can help lead us to our goals, our interests, and our positive growth. - National Association of School Psychologists 

Splendora ISD is excited to highlight the contributions of Alex Weber - LSSP, Marlen Salinas - SSP Intern, and Michelle Reynolds - LSSP.  Our LSSPs support academic, social, and emotional needs of students through academic and behavioral consultation, counseling as a related service, assessment of students for special education, individualized educational program development, disability-related parent training, coordination of community support, transition services, and professional development among other duties.  

Our LSSPs are committed to “The Power of Possibility” and our District’s mission of “Cultivating Exceptional People.”    

Please take a moment to visit with the SISD LSSPs if you have any questions or concerns or would like to express your gratitude for the work they do to support the needs of our district.
