Promoting Social Emotional Learning

The counseling and mental health support staff at West Hempstead Middle School visited seventh and eighth grade English classes on Sept. 16 to make introductions, kicking off their social emotional learning program. The team provided students with information regarding the mental health services offered in the building and ensured they were aware of the various avenues through which to seek support. The support staff also provided an overview of the social emotional learning topics to be covered throughout the year.
