Are You Ready for #SEL Superpower Week?
March 6-10 – A week of advocacy for children
We are working hard to get ready for social and emotional learning superpower week next week culminating in International #SEL Day on Friday, March 10th. Now is the time to ensure our children’s social and emotional well-being is a focus in our schools, homes and communities! There are several ways you can get involved!
Tell Us YOUR SEL Superpower – Yours and your child’s or students’ (for educators). Whether its kindness, empathy, generosity, your presence and focus, listening skills, problem solving skills, responsible decision-making, perseverance, gratitude, perspective taking – you name it! – we want to know and share it on social media. Fill out the quick form below and you’ll see us repost your superpower on social media next week!
Send Us Your SEL Superpower Video – Tomorrow is the last day to upload a quick video of yours or your child’s SEL Superpower. Tell us what it is and why. Be sure and orient your phone vertically. You’ll be seeing many more next week with a few celebrity surprises!
