Social Emotional Skill Building

    ​The Brainwise framework teaches children ten "wise ways" to help identify feelings and cope with them effectively.


    At Nederland Elementary School, we want all of our children to feel emotionally grounded, have strong social skills and know how to express themselves, know how to lower the drama in their lives, resolve conflicts and maintain healthy relationships.  We want our children to make solid choices, to face life's challenges with confidence, and to SHINE!  

    NES and Teens, Inc. have paired together this year to begin lessons for a Social Emotional skill-building program starting January 2016.  Ann Sherman, our Parenting Matters Coordinator, will be sharing tips for parents.  Please follow the links below to access this information.
