Centennial focuses on students' sense of belonging
- Focus on Students
The School Wellness team at Centennial Elementary is super excited to launch our first school wide campaign to improve students' sense of belonging through connection and peer-to-peer recognition of belonging. We know students need to feel like they belong for learning to occur. Having a sense of belonging also fosters both mental and physical wellness.
We also know parents play an important role in our quest to increase the sense of belonging, so we have asked for their support in partnering with us. We have posed this question to them, "what did you do to help someone feel like they belong today?" Students will recognize each other for acts of belonging and give a Shining Star Gram to that person to put on our school-wide bulletin board.
This story exemplifies our ELEVATE Focus Area: Social-Emotional Learning. Sharing stories about how the district provides innovative social-emotional programming and practices to students across all schools.
