Dear KSD Community,
The social emotional well-being of our students is an essential priority for our school district. In our Strategic Plan, we speak to the importance of inspiration and connection, which aligns to our goal of supporting EVERY learner to increase their sense of belonging within our school community. At Bacich our staff start each day with a Morning Meeting where children are able to build relationships and community within their classroom setting. At Kent, advisory is designed to provide an opportunity to learn about oneself and others, as well as share in problem solving, build relationship skills, grow social awareness, and celebrate successes.
These intentional actions are honorable ways our team of educators are prioritizing the well-being of our students so they are able to fully engage in their school learning! We are quite lucky to have these supports embedded in our children’s daily learning.
Take Good Care,
