SEL Curriculum Advisory Videos

Here at Sand Point, we use social learning theory as the framework for implementation throughout each month. Advisory meetings for Sand Point’s SEL curriculum are held on the first Monday of each month and the SEL theme for the month is presented. At the end of the month, the work is presented by Student Council at the morning all-school assembly. Families are welcome to attend.

Watch the videos with your Squirrels to share and learn together.

Is your Squirrel still keeping track of all the minutes on their wheels? All time on the saddle counts – not just rides to school!

Just a reminder to have your Squirrel log the minutes on the Yellow “Bike to School” form sent home, add the minutes up at the end of the month, and turn the form in by June 7th. Please submit the form to the SPE Office. (If teachers receive forms, please send to the office, thanks!)

Ride On, Squirrels!
