Social-emotional learning theme of the month: Optimism

e-Connections Post

SCUSD schools will be working all year on developing the social-emotional skills of students — competencies that can lead to success in class and happiness in life.

Each month, teachers and staff will be focusing on one social-emotional learning theme. This month’s theme is optimism. Optimists tend to interpret difficult situations in the best possible light and see good in the motives of others. Optimism can positively affect mental and physical health.
