Social and Emotional Learning

Our guiding principle for Distance Learning for All is to focus on safety, wellness, and connection. Teachers, principals, and support staff are all working to support our students.  Most importantly, we want to continue our school support for essential physical needs like food, clothing, and shelter, social and emotional health and safety needs, and learning needs that will allow our students to continue their learning into next year. Our community agencies and partners are also reaching out to provide support.  The links below include a range of resources to support safety, wellness and social and emotional learning during distance learning. All of these areas will continue to be updated as additional resources are identified.  Please also look in the Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) section for a weekly skill focus that includes strategies, activities for students, and tips for parents and guardians.

Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) provides a foundation for safe and positive learning and enhances students' ability to succeed in school, careers, and life. This section provides resources for the development of social and emotional skills. Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) involves helping children learn the following:

  1. Self-awareness
  2. Self Management
  3. Social Awareness
  4. Relationship Skills
  5. Responsible Decision-Making
