Feb. 5: Parent Education: Dr. Nancy Frey Presentation on Social and Emotional Learning @ 6:00 pm (Solana Pacific-live or Skyline-via telecast)
A little something to think about:
A Wonderful Opportunity that I Don’t Want You to Miss!
Solana Beach School District is committed to educating the whole child, and we know that the social and emotional well-being of our students is a critical component to their academic success. As you know, our focus this year at SV is to provide opportunities (within the classroom and throughout the campus) for our students to build self-awareness and self-management skills.
In past newsletters, I have invited you to join the staff in a book study of All Learning is Social and Emotional. We are pleased to invite all families to join us for a wonderful parent education night. Dr. Nancy Frey, distinguished educator and co-author of this book, will be presenting on how to set the stage for your child’s success with an emphasis on social and emotional learning. Dr. Frey will be presenting at Solana Pacific on Wednesday, February 5, 2020 from 6:00-7:00 p.m. Childcare is available.
In addition, for families that live in the Solana Beach area (92075), we will be holding a live telecast of the presentation in the Skyline’s theater during the presentation. Childcare will also be available at Skyline.
