Upcoming Social Emotional Learning Night

Do you have difficulty with your child refusing to come to school?  Do you want to learn what might be "red flags" that show your child might benefit from professional help?  Do you want to learn about the new Second Step curriculum or what support exists in the middle school at Peterson?  Do you want to find out about resources in our community? 

Please plan to join us for our first-ever Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Night next Thursday, March 22nd from 5:15-7:00 p.m.  We will have information about what kids are learning and experiencing at Peterson as well as a number of organizations sharing their expertise. 

A free dinner and door prizes will begin at 5:15 - please enter through the Cafeteria.  Mr. Coleman and Ms. Martino will provide a brief overview of the counseling program at Peterson, and then breakout sessions will begin at 5:55.  Both Arabic and Spanish interpreters will be available at the event.
