We use Second Step for our social emotional curriculum. The idea behind using a universal, classroom based curriculum is to help empower our students to learn to manage big feelings, problem solve with peers and adults, and learn skill necessary to learning. Each month, we will feature information about the topic our students are working on.
For our first month, our schoolwide theme is our school as a welcoming place where every student feels like he or she belongs. In our morning announcements and school assembly, we’ll be reminding students to welcome others and act and speak in safe, respectful, and responsible ways. In addition we’ll be reminding students of our school wide expectations: Caring, Responsible and Always Learning.
We’ll also begin teaching the Second Step program, which includes lessons that support these behaviors.
Support your child at home in welcoming others and acting and speaking in safe, respectful, and responsible ways. Please tell your student’s teacher if you have questions about specific ways you can help your child with these behaviors at home.
