SEL 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.
