South Middle School received the No Place for Hate distinction for the 2021-22 school year through their hard work in creating activities like Start With Hello Week, Unity Week and No Name Calling/Conflict Resolution activities centered around messages of inclusion, tolerance, and acceptance. Building inclusive and safe communities in which respect is the goal, and all students can thrive. Staff and students all participated in various activities throughout the year in line with the district character themes and anti-defamation league standards.
Our 6th graders finished the fourth lesson in a four-lesson series on the Zones of Regulation curriculum centered around creating a strategy toolbox of emotion regulation skills. Students learned a breathing strategy called Lazy 8 breathing and developed a toolbox of additional coping skills to adjust behaviors in each emotional zone. Ask your student one strategy they learned about how to cope with their emotional zones!
