About Ayo! CONNECT
Your 3rd–5th grade student has a unique opportunity to join Ayo! CONNECT! For the past two years, students have engaged in this dynamic and engaging no-cost program focused on instruction and practice of wellness skills. This year, we have taken all the best of our in-person modules and created an exciting new distance learning program!
We believe in wellness for all! We also believe that to be well, we must intentionally focus on what researchers and educators refer to as social emotional learning (SEL). These skills include:
- Social Awareness
- Relationship Skills
- Responsible Decision-Making
Recent studies have shown a direct correlation between SEL, increases in school performance, and decreases in negative or disruptive behaviors. Children who experience improved well-being are more engaged, self-confident, and connected to others. Our goal is to provide children with a safe and engaging environment in which they are encouraged to build CONNECTions to their own feelings and behaviors, learn to interact more positively with others, practice taking appropriate and productive risks, understand how to set goals and make decisions, learn how to fail cheerfully when they make mistakes, and have fun! Our sessions are facilitated by credentialed teachers in partnership with school staff and administration—an essential collaboration for whole child development.
Ayo! CONNECT 2021 spring session dates are as follows:
Wednesdays and Fridays, March 24, 26, 31 and April 2, 7, 9, 14, 16 from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. on Zoom.
