Anti-Bully Curriculum


We want your child to be as successful as possible at school. Success in school is not just about reading and math. It is also about knowing how to learn and how to get along with others. We will be using the Second Step program in our classroom to teach these critical skills.

The Second Step program teaches skills in the following four areas

Skills for Learning: Students gain skills to help themselves learn, including how to focus their attention, listen carefully, use self-talk to stay on task, and be assertive when asking for help with school work.
Empathy: Students learn to identify and understand their own feelings and others feelings. Students also learn how to take another's perspective and how to show compassion.
Emotion Management: Students learn specific skills for calming down when experiencing strong feelings, such as anxiety or anger.
Problem Solving: Students learn a process for solving problems with others in a positive way.


If you would like further information about the Second Step program you can go online to with the activation key SSP1 FAMI LY71 to watch videos about the Second Step program and get information about what your child is learning.
