A goal of the MMS guidance department is to be proactive rather than reactive in our approach to working with students on the many challenges they face throughout adolescence. This goal is achieved through classroom guidance lessons. Guidance curriculum includes lessons that address the following:
Empathy Communication Perspective taking Respectful disagreement Negotiation and compromise Emotion management Coping with stress Goal Setting
Guidance department curriculum builds social/emotional and communication skills, teaches students how to set goals, and how to positively deal with stressful situations. Skills taught align with RSU 57's Habits of Work and Learning Standards.
