As you reviewed the first report card of the year, you will have noticed the new Social Emotional Learning (SEL) criteria. For some of you, this information may have provided welcomed reassurance, while others may have been left wondering how better to support your child’s social-emotional growth at home. One of our favorite resources is Parent Toolkit. This website has a wealth of resources and information on topics ranging from academics to health & wellness- there’s even a section on financial literacy. Here in the counseling center, we LOVE the social and emotional section! There you can find developmental milestones, strategies to support your child’s social and emotional growth and many great articles. We hope you will find this tool helpful whether you are in immediate need of support, or you want to bookmark the resource for future use.
Parents of 5th Graders, it’s almost November! Time for a new rotation of 5th Grade Leadership Jobs! We count on the kids to be responsible and keep track of their jobs, but sometimes they need a little extra help from adults. Remember, all 5th grade leadership jobs for the entire year are posted on the 5th Grade Leadership section of our BPE SEL webpage.
