We know our world has changed dramatically due to the pandemic, so we know the support you need has changed as well.
For this reason, we created additional SEL lessons for you to use as a teacher, virtually, with your students OR to use as a parent/guardian at home with your child(ren). We are here for YOU because we know whether at home or at school, meeting the needs of our students is of utmost importance, so when they return to school, they are in a healthy place and ready to learn.
- healthy discussions
- positive mindset
- relationship skills
