On Tuesday, January 8 from 6:00-7:00pm, please join me and Social Emotional Learning Alliance for Massachusetts at the Warren Conference Center in Ashland for an in-depth look at social emotional learning (SEL) and the practical implementation of SEL in our schools and communities.

This informative event features a panel of experts and local educators, including Framingham School Committee Member Beverly Hugo, Director of Counseling and Social Emotional Learning at Ashland Public Schools Jennifer Cutler, Principal of Miller Elementary School in Holliston David Keim, and Parent Liaison, Natick Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC) Elise Gorseth.

The forum is part of Senate President Spilka’s MetroWest Kids Initiative, designed to identify strategies to help children in MetroWest learn, grow and succeed, with a focus on social emotional learning. SEL is a research-backed framework to bring skills like stress management, positive relationship-building, responsible decision-making, and empathy into classrooms and throughout the community.

Please bring a hard copy of your ticket for faster check in. Registration begins at 5:30pm. Use #MetroWestKids and #SEL4MA to promote the event on social media and share this link widely with your network!
