School Social Work Matters (National School Social Work Month)

There is no greater joy nor greater reward than to make a fundamental difference in someone's life - Mary Rose McGeady

In celebration of National Social Work Month, we would like to recognize and thank the social workers in our district, who do make a fundamental difference in the lives of our students. Social workers are a vital component of our school district and help to meet the needs of our students. The role that social workers play in our school may not always be noticed by the general public; however, it does directly impact the lives of students in a very powerful way. Our social workers work one on one with students, families and teachers to meet the needs of the students and address areas of issues. They are a support for the entire student body in times of crisis, trauma and loss. Their role and influence in the lives of Janesville students is vital to our school communities.

It is a profession that can be trying and emotionally exhausting; however, social workers can pride themselves on being a source of hope—striving to meet the basic needs of our students and enhancing their experience at school.

Thank you to all of the social workers in our district. Your hard work, dedication and care for our students is noticed and valued.
