Chesapeake Public Schools is proud to join school districts across the nation during the week of November 9-13, 2020, to celebrate National School Psychology Week to highlight the important work school psychologists and other educators do to help 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.

Chesapeake Public Schools shares in the hopes of the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) 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.
