February SEL Theme of the Month: BLACK HISTORY MONTH!

Each February, we celebrate the history of black people in our country by learning about their stories, sharing our own experiences, and examining how we can strive to improve our own diversity and inclusion practices at home, in school, and in our global community. Please use this month as an opportunity (hey, January theme!) to have the sometimes difficult conversations that hopefully lead to heightened understanding, awareness, and appreciation for humanity with your students at school and your children at home.

Check out this month’s Bitmoji classroom for a wide variety of resources, books, and videos to help prompt conversations about Black History Month this year!

September SEL Theme: We’re Back!!

June SEL Theme: INTEGRITY!

We made it!! We have completed another school year, one which was anything but normal. We want to thank our staff for their tireless efforts, students for their patience and determination, and families for their flexibility. Let’s celebrate this month with our last SEL theme which speaks to an important quality that our school community shows daily – integrity. Defined as the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles, integrity is something we see at LaSalle II regularly from children and adults alike. This year has been challenging, but we’ve seen it through with kindness and integrity. Thank you for all you do, have an amazing summer, and we’ll see you all in August!

May SEL Theme: HOPE!

We have passed the one year mark for when our world was turned upside down by the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, it seems like a perfect time to take a breath and remind ourselves that life is returning to normal, or at least forming what our new normal will look like. We all need to have HOPE that we will get through this. We are stronger together. We try to be a school community that supports each other. We can do this! Please practice some self care this month, enjoy the coming beautiful weather, and have HOPE and faith in life!
