Social-Emotional Learning

  • Falmouth Public Schools is committed to supporting and strengthening students' social and emotional well being. In our schools, students have consistent opportunities to learn and practice healthy social behavior. All staff encourage students to share their perspectives and advocate for their needs so they can actively engage in their learning and interact with peers and adults in healthy ways. We are dedicated to creating learning environments that are supportive and culturally responsive. Building relationships and community is embedded in all four Strategic Objectives as part of our comprehensive plan to support students' social emotional learning (SEL), academic growth, and the ability to engage in meaningful ways with others and the world around them.
    The FPS Administrative Team spent some time exploring ways to make SEL more understandable to families who may be unfamiliar with the concept. The team decided the best way to illustrate what SEL looks like is to provide concrete examples from our schools. We’re pleased to share these brief features about SEL in our schools.
