March is National Social Work Month

03/06/2017
March is National Social Work Month and this year’s theme is “Social Workers Stand Up!,” by serving, advocating for, and empowering millions of people each day. We are so fortunate to have the most amazing socials workers right here within our Cabarrus County schools.
 

March 5 – March 11 is National School Social Work Week!

For those who do not feel heard – School Social Workers listen.

For those who have unmet needs – School Social Workers advocate.

For those who are marginalized – School Social Workers empower.

School Social Workers make positive change!

 

Our school social workers are change agents and serve as a vital link between home, school and the community. They are specially trained to focus on the whole child and to look at factors beyond the classroom that influence learning. School Social Workers strive every single day to reduce barriers to education and improve outcomes for children and families. They offer a range of services for students including crisis intervention, mental health support, combating homelessness, connecting to community resources and addressing student truancy.

 
 

We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincerest gratitude for their passion, commitment and dedication to creating positive change in the lives of children and families.

THANK YOU!
