Hello, Washington School Social Workers, Happy Summer! We worked hard to make the 2021-2022 school year the best it could be, and we know that our students, families, and colleagues have experienced stress like never before. We are in the middle of a dual public health crisis of COVID-19 and racial violence. Going forward, we will continue to be called on to bring our knowledge and experience to our students, families, staff and each other. Many organizations are providing education, webinars and chats for school social workers to connect with each other and gain practice knowledge, including SSWAA. We are in the process of transforming our leadership structure to make WASSW an even more welcoming and effective advocacy organization for school social work and our communities. Let us know how we can support you and what you want and need WASSW to be. Your voice is key; there is a place for you in WASSW.
KEEP IN TOUCH AND KNOW YOU ARE SO VALUABLE AND NECESSARY.
