The WJMS Colt Connection:
Social Emotional Learning Family Newsletter and Resource Page
Welcome to the Colt Connection
Hello WJMS families! Welcome to the Colt Connection, WJMS' Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Family Newsletter and resource page. Each week all WJMS students engage in a social emotional lesson in homeroom. SEL lessons are created by me, Melissa Shute, WJMS' Social Emotional Learning Specialist. The purpose of the Colt Connection is to extend SEL learning and resources to WJMS families.
My hope is the Colt Connection will support students and their adults to engage in meaningful conversations at home to help foster healthy and nurturing family environments.
A Little About Me
I am a Nationally Certified School Psychologist with experience in a variety of school settings. Currently I work as a member of the mental health team designing SEL curriculum for WJMS, providing mental health support to individual students and small groups, and to provide consultative support to families and teachers. My goal at WJMS is to integrate academic rigor with social emotional competency for all our awesome Colts.
I understand raising pre-teens and teens can be challenging! Please feel to reach out to me at any time or visit our "resources" tab for support Melissa.Shute@jeffco.k12.co.us 720-982-7591
