Second Step lessons will begin in all classrooms next week. This is a year long program in which students will learn important skills related to being a successful student, caring about others, emotion management, and problem solving. Homelinks will be sent home following some of the lessons as an opportunity for parents and children to work together on the skills being taught. Second Step is made possible via a grant awarded by the Greenfield-Central School Foundation.
