MOVE THIS WORLD
This Fall, students at CES & CUES started a program called "Move This World." Students watch short engaging videos to help develop self awareness, self management, social awareness, relationship skills and decision making. Students are learning a common language for expressing their emotions. Ask your child to show you the 10 Emogers!
Move This World strengthens the five core Social Emotional Learning competencies below.
