  Strive. Grow. Thrive  
 

"This week is School Psychologist Awareness Week. The theme this year is Strive. Grow. Thrive. I have asked the school staff to reflect on how they Strive, Grow, and Thrive. I hope to display these responses so we can gain encouragement through one another and continue to grow together as we help students Strive, Grow, and Thrive. For myself, I STRIVE to make a difference in students, parents, and teachers lives. I GROW with every relationship and interaction I have. I THRIVE because I work in a collaborative and positive environment. I am continuously grateful to the CSP staff and students for collaborating with me.
