Chesapeake Public Schools celebrates School Psychology Awareness Week from November 12-16. This year’s theme is “Unlock Potential. Find Your Password!” A password is a personal key for unlocking any number of areas of potential in our lives. School psychologists are particularly skilled at assisting students and staff in unlocking the resources, proactive and preventive skills, and positive connections necessary to unlock one’s full potential to thrive in school and life. Please thank your school psychologists for unlocking the potential in our students and staff!
