SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL WELLNESS
It is as important that students feel emotionally safe as physically safe at school. To support that experience, Waterford is focused on developing strong social/emotional functioning and a meaningful connection to their school community. This includes the availability of our School psychologists. Be well, take care of yourselves, and we invite you to reach out to us directly at any time. We look forward to being a resource for your family.
"Social/emotional learning is the process through which children understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships and make responsible decisions."
