The social and emotional wellness of each student is our chief focus. Universally, each teacher dedicates the first 30-40 minutes of each day for a morning meeting, social emotional learning and instruction, and an optimistic closure to frame the day. Additionally, we are proud to implement and use Second Step as our core curricular resource throughout the entire building at each grade-level. To learn more about Second Step and the importance of social emotional learning, check out this resource: https://www.secondstep.org/social-emotional-learning
We are acutely aware that many students may need more intensive, structured support to wellness than what is universally provided.
With a full-time school psychologist, full-time student support liaison, and a half-time social worker, we can layer on supports to ensure students are happy and healthy. To learn more about our student support structures, check out our Student Support page.
