Guidance Classes News
Guidance classes occur two times a month in your child’s classroom. All student in grades 5K-5th are currently receiving lessons from a social emotional learning curriculum called Second Step. Occasionally, there are opportunities for parents/guardians to complete a Homelink form with their student which reinforces the skill from that week. Thank you for completing these with your child. Elementary school students can earn an Honor Way ticket when they return the completed form!! Along with learning about empathy, students are also taught how to be better listeners, focus attention, use self-talk and be assertive. Ask your younger student in grades 5K and first grade about our friends Puppy and Snail. These friends help teach the lessons. The skills taught will not only assist children in being better learners in the classroom, but are skills they can utilize for the rest of their lives.
