November/December Updates



LSA has  been approved to begin the SEL

The SEL & Mental Health Academy is a project funded by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) to help schools and districts across the Commonwealth develop multi-tiered systems of SEL and mental health supports—classroom instruction, small-group support, and individualized care—that are effective, culturally sensitive, and sustainable. 

Over a three-year period, teams from selected districts participate in annual institutes combined with ongoing professional development, coaching, and customized technical assistance. These supports are designed to help schools integrate social and emotional learning (SEL) and mental health with their current MTSS frameworks, and align new programming with existing priorities, systems, and practices.

The Academy addresses these areas of content:

Project Slice 

Recently a team of teachers in multiple grades attended Project Slice. This was professional development that allowed teachers to experience Project Based Learning.   Like an entry event for a project, a Project Slice carries a lot of emotional weight and creates a genuine “need to know” energy about PBL and how to make it happen for all students. 

Art Supplies

Last Week Linden distributed art supplies to all students.  If you didn’t pick them up for your child you can contact Linden and let us know when you would like to drop in for a pick up.
