Your Source for Social-Emotional Learning Activities
Social-emotional learning is the process through which students learn to understand and manage their thoughts, mindsets and emotions. As students grow their social-emotional skills, they become better at self-managing, working with others and setting and achieving goals.
In order for students to become college and career ready, students must demonstrate well-developed social-emotional skills. In order to support this growth, KCKPS utilizes the Kansas Social-Emotional Character Development standards to help students build core principles, make responsible decisions, self-manage and to successfully work with others.
LGBTQ Pride Month is commemorated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall uprising in New York City. In June of 1969, patrons and supporters of the Stonewall Inn staged an uprising to resist the police harassment and persecution to which LGBTQ Americans were commonly subjected. This uprising marked the beginning of a movement to outlaw discriminatory laws and practices against LGBTQ Americans. Today, LGBTQ Pride Month celebrations include pride parades, picnics, parties, workshops, symposia and concerts, attracting millions of participants around the world.
"During LGBTQ+ Pride Month, we recognize the resilience and determination of the many individuals who are fighting to live freely and authentically. In doing so, they are opening hearts and minds, and laying the foundation for a more just and equitable America. This Pride Month, we affirm our obligation to uphold the dignity of all people, and dedicate ourselves to protecting the most vulnerable among us." - Joe Biden, President (WhiteHouse.gov)
