e-Connections Post John Bidwell

National University named John Bidwell Elementary as a Sanford Harmony Champion School earlier this week. Sanford Harmony is a social emotional curriculum reaching more than 480,000 students in Sacramento and across the country. Social emotional learning (SEL) develops skills in communication, empathy, respect of differences and collaboration.

Sacramento City Unified School District is a nationwide leader in advancing SEL skills among PreK-12 grade students. It is supported through the NOVO Foundation and the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning. SEL is incorporated into everyday teaching and teaches skills that extend beyond the classroom.
