Mrs. Flory and Mrs. Hackett do monthly classroom visits incorporating the Sanford Harmony Curriculum. Information about the program:
Sanford Harmony is the fastest growing Pre-K-6 grade social emotional learning (SEL) program in the nation, impacting more than 8 million children through more than 18,000 schools and sites nationwide. Sanford Harmony promotes positive peer relations among students through lessons and activities that encourage communication, collaboration, and mutual respect, helping boys and girls learn how to build healthy relationships beginning at childhood.
Sanford Harmony provides educators with the tools to foster and support social connections among all students, and to promote the social, emotional, and cognitive skills students need to successfully negotiate peer interactions, develop positive peer relationships, and thrive in school. Sanford Harmony incorporates multiple methods to teach positive relationships and create an inclusive classroom environment. A multi-layered approach is necessary to build a mutually respectful learning community.
By combining these approaches, students not only gain interpersonal competencies, but they also have continual experiences that promote the development of positive attitudes and relationships, as well as a supportive classroom climate.
