This Friday is our SEL: UNDER THE STARS event. We will have activities starting at 3:30pm. After, we will watch the Inside Out movie.

The activities are teacher led and will be held in the student lunchroom from 3:30-4:30 p.m. The activities are:

Calming center: Mr. Vega will create a space in one corner of the lunchroom for a calming center. He will teach breathing exercises, yoga, and stretching that can be use for self-regulation/self-management.

Art center: Create your own Mood Meter- Ms. Kelleher and Ms. Song will run this center.

Parent center: Learn about RULER, Mood Meter, and SEL competencies.

499 Family SEL Survey

Dear 499 Families,

​PS/IS 499 is committed to fostering a positive learning environment for our students and families. Our school is focusing on Social Emotional Learning (SEL) in effort to strengthen this work. SEL is a process through which children and adults acquire and apply the knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions. SEL will help our children to become more self-aware, self-manage emotions, develop positive social skills, become responsible decision makers and increase their relationship skills.

Our school’s SEL team meets weekly to plan how to best support students and our school community. As parents, you are valuable partners in this work. We would like to know your family and your child/children’s needs so we can better support you.

Please take a few moments to complete this family SEL survey. Your feedback is invaluable to us!
