At Daniel Webster we build personalized relationships with your students to promoting a positive classroom and school culture. We know that students who feel known and loved tend to experience school positively. Our staff works to establish classroom routines so that students practice social-emotional skills– equity and tolerance of other races, religions, sexual orientations, family structures, and cultures. We teach students to embrace their differences and establish expectations for student to follow. Our school values include: Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Ready to Learn.
Our goal is to ensure that students spend time learning in the classroom with their peers harmoniously. Daniel Webster uses a social emotional curriculum program called Second Step, which provides weekly lessons targeted to the development of social skills, problem solving skills. We work as an entire school to emulate the language in this program so we can consistently support students and they develop their social emotional skills. Proactive Restorative Practice Circles happen weekly in the classroom to build a positive, safe climate between students. Daniel Webster has a strong Positive Behavioral Supports and Interventions program where we recognize and motive students to be their best self at our school. Throughout the school year, we learn strategies and techniques to promote positive classroom and school culture.
We have a wellness center on campus that supports the development of social emotional skills. The purpose of the Wellness Center is to provide Daniel Webster students with a space to focus on the development and awareness of their emotional needs. This space has two designated functions – Cool Down and Talk it Out. These areas provide focused interventions to support individual students who are demonstrating difficulty in regulating their emotions. Our Wellness Center is staffed by a team of trained support providers who provide a full service tiered approach to meeting the individual needs of our students.
