Our mission at Eugene Field Elementary School is to excite, engage and educate every student every day so that all students will be academically, socially, and emotionally prepared for their future!
Eugene Field is a community igniting the joy of learning in every student to achieve their greatest success.
SOCIAL EMOTIONAL APPROACH TO LEARNING
Eugene Field Elementary School is one of five recipients of The Wallace Foundation's Social/Emotional Learning Grant. This is an intentional development of children's cognitive, interpersonal and character-building skills through a program researched and developed by Yale University. We also have counseling support services on site to better support our students' social and emotional health. Creating high-quality learning experiences means educating the whole child by meeting his or her social, emotional, and academic needs. Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions.
With strong social and emotional skills, our students will be able to set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
I am bright, there is nothing I cannot do.
Yesterday's failures are behind me.
Today's successes are yet before me,
And I will make today the very best day of all
For this day begins the rest of my life.
