Character.org Awarded A.C. Redshaw Elementary School with Promising School of Character!
Last year, Redshaw incorporated DEASEL days. On DEASEL Days, the entire school Drops Everything And participates in SEL lessons and character-building activities during extended day homeroom. This initiative has greatly assisted our school with ensuring that Social Emotional Learning and Character Education are embedded into our practice regularly. Our SEL pep rallies and positive behavior incentive program, “Zebra Stripes” have been extremely successful as well.
This year, we added an intramural sport that is in alignment with the 11 Principles of Effective Character Education (character.org). We have rolled out our very first teacher-student mentor program. Overall, it has been an amazing journey but the marathon continues as we continue to think of various ways to incorporate SEL into our daily practice.
