Virtual Open House 8/25

Traditionally, we would host an Open House for parents to meet their teachers on the second Wednesday of the school year. This was originally scheduled for Wednesday, 8/25 in the evening. This year, we are going to facilitate this a little differently.


Instead of hosting live Google Meet sessions with parents, we are asking each teacher to create a recorded Welcome Video for each class that will be made available to parents in Canvas and through email beginning Wednesday evening, 8/25. Teachers will create a visual presentation to go with their video recording. Please find some time to review this information and connect with your child's teachers if you have any questions.

Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Lessons begin 8/30

At Penn-Harris-Madison, we want to equip our students with the skills they need for success both now and in the future. One way we do this is through Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) lessons for all students. SEL is the knowledge and skills essential for wellbeing as well as personal and professional success. It includes teaching, modeling, practicing, and reinforcing these skills (Indiana Department of Education (IDOE)). The IDOE has seven (7) competencies/main SEL skills, including the following:


  • Insight: The ability to know your emotions and how they affect your thoughts and actions (important for self-confidence, self-esteem, empathy, and recognizing one’s strengths and areas of growth).

  • Regulation: The ability to recognize and manage one’s emotions (builds self-control, self-discipline, and impulse control).

  • Connection: The ability to have strong social awareness, giving students the ability to take the perspectives of others and empathize with people of diverse backgrounds and cultures.

  • Collaboration: The ability to work well with others (builds positive communication and conflict management skills).

  • Critical Thinking: The ability to make constructive choices and understand metacognitive strategies to enhance learning (builds responsible decision making, analytical and critical inquiry skills, which are necessary to approach learning from an innovative, creative, multicultural, and ethical lens).

  • Sensory-Motor Integration: When one is aware of their body and sensations in order to manage transitions, change routines, increase alertness for learning and improve regulation.

  • Mindset: The ability to demonstrate cognitive flexibility and a willingness to learn, which is critical for perseverance, adaptability, self-discovery, resilience and giving/receiving constructive feedback.


In order to intentionally teach these skills, Penn-Harris-Madison has created SEL lessons for our students based on Indiana Department of Education’s SEL standards/learning competencies. The lessons are taught by the classroom teacher one time per week (with the exception of a few weeks due to the school calendar). At the high school level, the lessons are taught during the first Gold day of the week in 3rd block since this block is longer than others due to lunch schedules. For more information, including an opportunity to view the SEL slide decks prepared for students to view with their class, please visit the P-H-M website at this link. During the 21-22 school year (SY), the slide decks will be released on P-H-M’s website prior to being taught. They will be released in roughly 9-week increments to align with grading quarters. The lessons for the 21-22 school year will start the week of August 30, 2021. Below is a summary of the lesson information for September. After reviewing the lessons, please contact Mr. Galiher if you have any concerns.
