Most of our classes are using the Sanford-Harmony kits to focus on Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) lessons.  These include units on Diversity and Inclusion, Empathy and Critical Thinking,  Communication, Problem-Solving, and Peer relationships.  Information will be sent to families about lessons we are doing, and things you can do at home as well to reinforce these ideas.
 
We have additional lessons we will do on these topics, either in guidance class or in the classroom.  At times videos and articles may be used.  Any time you have a question or concern, or would like to see for yourself what the class is watching or doing, please contact me at mmitchell@davidson.k12.nc.us and I will be happy to share links to anything used in class.
