The Principal's POV on...SEL & Trauma

Just prior to the break, I was given the wonderful opportunity to present at our December Title 1 Family Night! The topic: What's with all this SEL stuff, anyway?! Not only did we have a great turnout, but our students and their families were so engaged!


As we kick-off the second half of the year & prep for next week's Bulldog Buddy Roleplays, I thought it would be the perfect time to revisit some of the research and activities behind this district initiative. This way we can POP into the winter on the right foot! Click through on the video below to view my presentation...and don't forget to share your #EverydaySEL reflections via email or social media! Thank you for a fantastic week & have a great weekend...Happy New Year!
