Social-Emotional Program

Supporting our mission of educating the whole child, our School Counselor, provides explicit instruction in social emotional skills during her weekly class and sees small groups and individual students as needed. Our School Counselor works with all classroom teams to deliver our social emotional curriculum. 

Weekly in-class lessons that help all students strengthen social thinking to enhance their understanding of the social world, relationships, and improve their performance at school.  Our School Counselor implements tools from Michele Garner Winner’s Social Thinking Methodology program which is designed to support all learners in developing stronger social-emotional learning skills. 

All students participate to support their own social-emotional wellbeing as well as that of their team. Using structured and guided activities, cooperative games, role play, stories, and problem-solving, students learn and practice skills in class with the goal of generalizing to real-life situations.
