Toolbox Notes from Home
Many parents have approached us with examples of how their students are bringing home with them the skills of our Toolbox social emotional learning program.
To help encourage this school-to-home communication regarding the Toolbox, we would like for parents to write a brief note describing how your child has used the Toolbox.
If you see your child using the breathing tool, the quiet/safe place tool, or any of the 12 tools, send a note to your child’s teacher, and we will post the note in the classroom.
Your child will be proud to see their example posted for the class to see, and you will be reinforcing the important lessons of the Toolbox.
Working together, we hope to provide our students with the skills they need to become more resilient people.
Buck Roggeman, Principal
