Last spring, we granted the staff at Heart of the Lakes Elementary the funds to purchase a Second Step curriculum. This fall, they asked for an additional curriculum so there would be enough for multiple classrooms. We are proud to help these teachers provide such a great program to our students, so Grant #2 was awarded!
Second Step is a program that teaches social & emotional skills so that children will have both social and academic success. This program gives kids skills for learning, emotional management and problem solving. It will be a great resource for teachings and staff grades K-4. It will also be used whole group, small group, and with individuals who need positive behavior skills. This program will piggy back HOTL’s Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support Program. Ultimately, the goal is student success for all kids and these skills will enhance academic performance. The research tells us that if we spend less time on discipline, there will be more time for academic learning.
