Social/Emotional Education

Social and emotional education, or instruction in the skills necessary for personal and interpersonal success, is provided by the psychologist and social worker outside the classroom in small groups of six students. The goal of these sessions is to help the students establish respect for themselves and others, which is the basic underpinning of the Churchill community. Toward this goal, we help the students identify their personal strengths and weaknesses, build their self-esteem, develop effective coping and problem-solving skills, improve communication skills, and become effective self-advocates. Group discussion, brainstorming, small-group activities, role-playing and other hands-on activities provide the format for learning and reinforcement of the social/emotional curriculum.


As students progress through the Elementary School, each of these areas will be revisited at the developmentally appropriate levels, as we explore hypothetical situations which mimic real life challenges, and reflect on past and present experiences to build the solid foundation that will prepare them for the future.
