From birth, through school, and long after graduation, your child is first and foremost a unique human being. Your child's life is filled with relationships, emotions — and the ability to navigate those things in any given situation throughout life play a huge role in creating a fulfilling and happy life. In Eudora Schools, our mission is to educate the whole child, and that includes social-emotional learning and behavioral health.
The research is clear: Social-emotional learning gives students the essential skills that are required to be ready for — and thrive in — college, career and life. Social-emotional skills, such as problem-solving, managing emotions, communication and teamwork, improve a student's academic learning and test scores.
There are three main areas where we focus on social-emotional learning in all grade levels, beginning in preschool and kindergarten and continuing through graduation:
