• This year students will be participating in a character building program called Second Step.  This program gives students the social skills they need to actively engage with their peers in an appropriate manner. As student interact even more with peers, the research-based Second Step program reinforces skills such as participating in conversations, giving compliments, managing strong feelings, and taking responsibility. They’ll love the award-winning music videos, which can make remembering their problem-solving and calming-down skills a breeze.
