December and January SEL message

Hello Cubs, Kodiaks, Grizzlies and Bruins!  Our SEL focus in December was all about the ‘Social Awareness’ standards; our goal was to learn about cultural traditions and celebrations of the season around the world.  In January we turn our focus to ‘Social Engagement’ as we encourage kids (and adults too!) to find ways to make your community a better place.  This could be as simple as spreading positivity, or as involved as organizing a socially distanced volunteer campaign.  Students will have plenty of chances to learn about ways to help and be encouraged to get out there and make a difference!
