This week school systems celebrate National School Psychology Week to highlight the important work school psychologists and other trained educators do to help all students thrive!

Did you know?

In Monongalia County Schools, a Comfort Bag is available at each school to offer students and families items of comfort when facing difficult times and/or crisis situations. The bag includes age appropriate books, fidget toys and helpful tools to provide relief.  In addition, there are informational materials and a guide to community resources qualified to help.

The initial bags were donated by West Virginia Prevention Solutions, part of the Monongalia County Prevention Coalition.        

Angela Hayes, Monongalia County Schools’ Coordinator of Psychological Services recently received additional bags, contributed by Healthy Minds, a collaborative partnership based in WVU Medicine’s Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute. 

 “Our schools have been so very thankful to have a Comfort Bag available for students or a group of students who are in need of additional support during a difficult time,” said Hayes.

The Monongalia County Schools’ Student Services team is prepared and available at all times to help students and families in crisis.
