Social Emotional Learning: Second Step Curriculum
We want your child to be successful in school, and that means going beyond the basics. Excelling in academic classes is important, but students also need to know how to learn, make good decisions, handle strong emotions, and get along with others.
This year all Issaquah Middle Schools will begin the Second Step Middle School Program, which focuses on skills and concepts that are designed to help students both in and out of school. These include: Mindsets and Goals, Values and Friendships, Thoughts, Emotions, and Decisions, and Serious Peer Conflicts.
Each week a lesson is taught we will post a short summary and family connection question in our school E-News. If you have any questions about the Second Step Middle School Program, please do not hesitate to contact Nikki McGrath, Maywood’s PBSES Coach, for more information. Thank you for supporting your child in learning the skills and concepts that lead to success in school and in life.
