Social-Emotional Learning (SEL)
Through the support of the Project AWARE grant, ASCS has been able to purchase social-emotional learning curriculum for all buildings. Social-emotional learning focuses on bulding 5 core competencies around self-management, self-awareness, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making. School counselors are supporting these efforts by collaborating with teachers to deliver these lessons to students during the school week.
ACSC firmly believes in educating the Whole Child. In order for a child to be available for learning experiences, they must first feel safe, regulated, and ready to interact socially with others. Taking time to intentionally teach these social-emotional skills to our students will help prepare them for the best possible learning environment.
If you have questions or would like to learn more about social-emotional learning at ACSC, please reach out to your school counselor.
