Social Emotional Learning for Students K-5
Presented by SUPAC - Kristine O’Brien and Shana Lewis, Parent Outreach Specialists
Social Emotional Learning is essential to creating schools that effectively prepare all young people to succeed in school and in life. Evidence shows that explicitly teaching these skills can have a wide-ranging impact on students’ development. This session will include an interactive presentation on social emotional development and increasing social emotional skills in young children. Following guidance from the New York State’s Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), we will provide interactive activities, discussion and resources to foster your student’s social emotional skills.
