  • For Adams, SEL is as important as anything else done in education

    Posted by Ari Vazquez on 1/18/2023

    As we are in mid-January, we’re asking ourselves how we can best serve our Adams families in ways that strengthen social-emotional learning (SEL) strategies in the classroom and deepen the partnership between our Bulldog educators and families so we can all help our students be more than just okay.

    We hope that we continue to work with each other with trust and collaboration in support of the Yakima Valley educational community. It’s important for our SEL Team to hear your perspectives and insights. In fact, we believe fostering a strong connection with and hearing critical feedback from our Adams community of educators, families, and advocates is crucial for next level success for our students. As we begin this new semester, let’s build and deepen our relational trust and authentic connections as we move forward together on this journey.

    We are reminded each day of the power of SEL/PLCs/GLTs through your hard work together. That work affords us the unique opportunity to witness the far-reaching, long-lasting, positive outcomes SEL yields for our K-5 little people. Advocating for SEL and ensuring each child has access to the critical resources that will help them thrive is more important than ever.

    Team Adams: Thank you for all you do to support the safety and social-emotional well-being of children. Your collaboration and teamwork has grown to next level leadership by all grade teams.
