SRS Health / SEL Curriculum

Our students are multi-faceted individuals. Their social-emotional well-being plays a role in their overall learning. Our Health/SEL Curriculum provides information to our students on how to handle life's bumps in the road. We want them to feel they can "bounce back" from setbacks. We want them to find their voice in how they build friendships and communicate with others. Our Physical Education teachers oversee the Health/SEL Curriculum programs and works with teachers to organize resources. We work to coordinate lessons to provide time to revisit any topics with a grade level, a small group, or any individuals. Parents would always be a part of any discussion should we see the need to do any individualized work around SEL/Health areas with students.
Here is an overview of our SEL/Health Curriculum - additional information is available on teacher's websites:
