Mrs. Contreras

Social Emotional Learning

Social Emotional Learning (SEL)

  • Teachers continue to prioritize relationships and engagement by integrating SEL in their classes.

  • SEL can be infused in curricula and classroom practices and can be explicitly taught through lessons.

  • Daily lessons will include a welcoming inclusion activity, engaging strategies, and an optimistic closure to create a climate and culture of safety, inclusion and belonging. 

  • The school counselor will deliver explicit SEL lessons in all classes 6-8 during all attendance check-in periods.
