Social & Emotional learning at sato

The Raccoon Way!

At Sato, we believe in educating the whole child and understand that our students' social and emotional health and well being are crucial to their development as human beings. Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the foundation of this work.

According to the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL), SEL is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.

We hope you find resources here that will support you as we partner to nurture your child's social and emotional growth at home.

Here is a slideshow that provides an overview of what social and emotional learning is, why it is important, and how we are incorporating it into the Raccoon Way!
