Social Emotional Learning
I am looking forward to supporting both students and families during the 2020 school closure. When school was in session, Jefferson Elementary School had a fully implemented Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) program! All students had the opportunity to participate in lessons focused on behaviors that promote learning, empathy, emotion management, and social problem solving. During the closure, I hope that students will continue this important academic and social emotional learning. To find out more about PBIS and the social emotional academic standards adopted by Washington State, please browse through the links on the right side of the page. I also invite you to explore the resources related to supporting your child through these uncertain times. You will find storybooks and additional resources related to COVID-19 linked from this page along with a library of mindfulness exercises supported by our Second Step social emotional curriculum.
To support your child's continued social emotional learning, please access weekly lessons by clicking the "Google Classroom" link at right. From Google Classroom you can access character trait and social emotional skill based lessons, for each grade level, for each week of the school closure. You will also find lessons from your P.E., Music, and Art/Tech teachers at this link!
You and/or your student are welcome to post a public comment for me in Google Classroom or you can reach me at the email address listed below. You can expect a response to all emails within 24 hours (Monday - Friday) during the school closure.
