What is SEL? 

"Social and Emotional learning is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions." - The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL)

All of our teachers at Jefferson and Washington School have been doing a fabulous job integrating Social and Emotional learning into the curriculum and daily routines. Our teachers recognize the value of incorporating lessons to help our students. Lyndhurst School District utilizes a program called, Sanford Harmony. Sanford Harmony is a social emotional learning program for grades Pre-K-6 students designed to highlight communication, connection, and community both in and outside of the classroom. The program lessons focus on helping our youth become compassionate and caring individuals. Please review the website at your convenience to learn more about the lessons, programs and concepts our children are learning:  https://www.harmonysel.org/.

 

See link below for an example of SEL lessons our first graders at Washington are learning. Our teachers are students are doing a wonderful job! Keep up the great work!

hi

Welcome to Ms. Claydon's School Counseling website! I have the joy of working with students through individual counseling, small group counseling, and classroom lessons. I collaborate with parents, teachers and the Child Study Team in order to best meet the needs of my students.

While this has been a challenging time for everyone, I am here to help navigate and support students and families. I encourage all of my students and parents to communicate with me and share how I can help during this time. I encourage all my students to develop a routine at home, set new intentions every morning for the day, maintain a balanced and healthy diet and exercise routine and remember to take deep breaths! Try to be patient with yourself and remember that we encourage you to communicate with us! We are here to help and want to make sure you have a positive school year regardless of the change and uncertainties that arise every day.

I can't wait to see you all in person but, until then, keep the lines of communication open and be kind and patient with yourself! We are all doing our best! Be well and healthy~

                                                         Tips for Remote Learning

* Plan a daily routine

* Don't be afraid to ask questions! (I am a phone call or email away)

* Don't procrastinate (try your best to stay focused and get your work done as soon as it is assigned)

* Actively participate in your teacher's zoom sessions

* Try to maintain a healthy and balanced diet (be sure to eat breakfast before your school day starts)

* Exercise and take daily walks during your breaks! This will help you to refocus and rejuvenate!

* Be patient and understanding with yourself and your teachers and peers, this is new for all of us :)
