At Skyview, we believe in educating the whole child. This means we not only teach the academic skills our students will need in the future, but also the social and emotional skills they will need to be good friends, good employees, good neighbors, and good people who help to make our world a better place. All students will have the opportunity to learn social emotional skills through weekly Second Step lessons, which includes a Bully Proofing curriculum. The teachers at Skyview also work to incorporate the skills developed in these lessons throughout the week. We invite you to participate in the social emotional learning by checking this webpage for what we're working on, by completing the Second Step Home Links with your children, and by accessing the family resources for your child's grade level(s).
