Second Step Classroom Lessons

Parents, wouldn’t it be great if there were a way to protect your middle school student from risky behaviors, such as bullying, aggression, and substance abuse, while improving his or her school success? Fortunately, research shows there is a way to do just that. This year, we will begin the Second Step program. Building on and practicing skills throughout the middle school years helps students become better able to use them. As in the programs taught in previous years, this program focuses on skills that will help your student succeed in school and in life. These skills include: • Empathy • Communication • Perspective taking • Respectful disagreement • Negotiation and compromise • Emotion management • Coping with stress • Goal setting.  As parents, you play a vital role in helping your student develop strong social skills. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions about the Second Step program.  Below you will find the parent letters that will be sent home as we cover each lesson. (G6= 6TH GRADE, G7= 7TH GRADE, G8=8TH GRADE)
