About SEL Day

  • RCSD aims to increase social-emotional learning to break down barriers that may impede our student’s academic and overall success. On March 1, please spend time with scholars and staff to build community, cultivate relationships, and make authentic partnerships. Our hope as a district is that we continue to intentionally incorporate SEL into our daily practices to make tremendous gains for our students, school climate, culture, and community.

    Please enjoy the activities below with your scholars the morning of March 1st and fellow staff in the afternoon as we continue to build One RCSD!
