Social-Emotional Learning

At Dobson, we prioritize teaching the whole-child. We deliberately teach habits and mindsets that can help students act with respect, empathy, and integrity. Therefore, the school sets aside 30 minutes daily for morning meeting.

Second step is among one of the resources used in morning meetings. Second Step is a curriculum written specifically to help students “manage their own emotions, form healthy relationships, make good decisions, and cope with everyday social and academic challenges.” You can learn more at OR the Committee for Children.
