Choose Love

I wanted to share some information about the Choose Love Program that all of the schools in the SAU are in the process of adopting. This is the second of three years in this process and we have seen some great progress made already. The following is information from Choose Love and a link to their website if you would like to learn more.

The Choose Love programs teach the foundational concepts and skills of social and emotional learning (SEL), and is informed by current brain research and neuroscience. Our comprehensive, evidence-based enrichment program was created by educators for educators and is aligned with Common Core State Standards and American School Counselor Association (ASCA) Mindsets & Behaviors for Student Success, and CASEL’s five core SEL competencies. This unique program is easy to implement and adaptable to varying schedules, environments and uses.

The goal of the Choose Love Enrichment ProgramTM is to provide children with the knowledge, attitude, and skills they need to choose love in any situation. These abilities include:

Understanding and managing emotions (self-awareness and self-management),

setting and achieving positive goals,

feeling and showing empathy and compassion for others (social awareness),

establishing and maintaining positive relationships, and

making responsible decisions.

To learn more please go to the website and please check in with your child’s school to learn what they are currently doing.
