Social and Emotional Learning
Social and Emotional Learning is a new initiative/priority PV schools this year and encompasses a range of social-emotional counseling and educational support for students, staff, and parents/family. Our social and emotional well-being is a vital, integrative part of who we are. We are passionate about helping children learn skills that support them in their social-emotional development and well-being. It is important for us to build a strong home-school community, so together we can help our children grow and develop into confident, healthy, responsible, and compassionate human beings.
If you know a Wildfire student or staff member who is struggling with social and/or emotional issues or stress and believes they need some help, please complete a referral form linked below and a Wildfire SEL team member will reach out within 48 hours (excluding weekends or holidays/breaks). The SEL team will work with the person referred to provide help and support.
Wildfire Elementary School is excited to announce a partnership with Everybody Matters.
Regardless of their background or emotional state, every child deserves the best education possible and a life of happiness and fulfillment—because every child matters. That’s the guiding philosophy behind Everybody Matters (EM), a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing individualized social-emotional support to children in need. Their trauma-informed counseling is provided by university interns who receive specialized training and ongoing feedback from experienced clinicians on the EM staff. This enables them to empower children with a wide variety of social-emotional coping skills, which in turn helps the kids to thrive in the classroom, at home and throughout their lives.
