Social-Emotional Learning

We spend a lot of time teaching social-emotional skills and talking about how to manage emotions and resolve conflicts.

Our teachers regularly facilitate circle discussions to give students a voice, talk through issues that may be happening, and to build their classroom communities. Last year, we implemented a program called Toolbox which has been an amazing resource for our entire community - students, teachers and parents. It teaches 12 tools that we all have inside of us, all the time; it’s just a matter of learning how and when to use them to help us navigate different situations and feelings.
