Social Emotional Learning Framework: S.E.L.F

Relationships Matter!  In the never-ending discussion around school improvement and reform, the role of relationships rarely gets mentioned. However, research is proving that whether inside the classroom, outside the classroom, between peers, or families, relationships are key to student success and growth. They matter not only for grades, but also for engagement. They matter not only for understanding but also for providing meaning and context. They matter not only for attendance but also for reducing chronic absences. Relationships Matter because they give us an opportunity to make a difference in a student’s life for the better, and quite often they leave an imprint on our lives as well.
We are a great school with amazing educators and support staff. We are a work family that works hard by putting kids first without hesitation. We teach the students who are in front of us regardless of gaps, developmental needs, or socio-economic status. This is our “Why” and our “Purpose”. Relationships Matter at Jefferson because Kids Matter and that’s the key to our success!
