Imagine a world where all people thrive and empathy abounds. A world of caring, inclusive communities that promote respect for all. In a time when incivility and polarization seem rampant, we believe that building a better world starts right here at home. We want Hamlin girls to know that "What You Do (and how you do it!) Matters," and our new social emotional learning curriculum is part of our commitment to help them meet the challenges of their time. Through implementation of our new program in partnership with the Institute for Social Emotional Learning (IFSEL), we will broaden this emphasis throughout all grades in order to provide students with opportunities to develop the self-awareness, social awareness, and decision-making skills that help them build healthy relationships and affect positive change now and over the course of their lives.
