Social Emotional Learning

At O'Neill Middle School

Social Emotional Learning is an important component of O'Neill's curriculum and culture. Social emotional lessons are taught on Wednesdays. The main lesson is taught on the first Wednesday of the month, with follow up lessons on the following Wednesdays. For these lessons, O'Neill uses the Second Step resource, which is also used by our elementary schools in District 58. Social emotional learning standards are also incorporated into our content areas, and are a part of the culture here at O'Neill. We strive to provide students with a comprehensive program to ensure that these life skills are a part of our students' experience throughout their day.
