Social Emotional Learning

Grand Prairie is using the Second Step resource to support the social emotional development of our young learners.  Students participate in weekly lessons with their peers.  Second step helps students develop skills needed to be successful both in and out of the classroom.  The program focusses on emotion management, situational awareness and academic achievement.

The Dean of Student's meets monthly wih all classrooms for Tiger Talks.  During this time, the Dean can provide additional social emotional learning opportunities for students.  Topics are tailored to the needs of the students.

Students also participate in the Character Counts program.  The program highlights six "pillars" of good character including respect, citizenship, responsibility, trustworthiness, fairness and sharing.  Each month the P.E. staff go over the definition of the pillar of the month.  Students are recognized for their good character through Tiger Stripes, weekly Character counts trophy winners and Student of the Month.
