Social Emotional Support

We believe that to effectively support the social emotional well-being of our community we must operate from a perspective of balanced integration. We must recognize that both “care” and “connection” are vital foundations to social emotional well-being. In addition, the well-being of all bodies of our community are inextricably dependent upon one another. 

We recommend that the social emotional needs of our community be built on the tenets of “connection” and “care.”

Connection: Supporting and sustaining connection to increase the social emotional well-being of students, staff, and families

Care: Being aware of the needs of all those in our community and providing time & resources of care
