e-Connections Post Leataata Floyd

Leataata Floyd Elementary School (formerly Jedediah Smith) kicked off the second year of its Family University program on September 27.

Topics of study for the 2012-13 year were discussed at the first meeting and the renaming process for the school was explained.

Families and staff also engaged in a deep conversation about Social and Emotional Learning (SEL). Leataata Floyd is one of four SCUSD schools participating in a grant-funded pilot program to focus on SEL, which is broadly defined as a process of helping children and adults develop the life skills necessary to be successful.

Family University at Leataata Floyd Elementary will culminate with a “field trip” for family and community members and staff to neighboring C.K. McClatchy High School.
