second step


The Second Step program is a Social Emotional Learning program delivered via classroom guidance lessons. Second Step is designed to promote skills and attitudes that increase students’success in school, help get along with others, and prevent violence, bullying, and substance abuse.
Every grade level at Las Flores Middle School will be receiving four classroom guidance lessons, each delivered through a different subject area. The 7th grade students will also receive a suicide prevention lesson.
The lessons vary each year but usually include one lesson per quarter including a study skills/high school transition lesson, an emotions management lesson, cultural proficiency/bullying lesson, and a college/career exploration lesson. The lesson topics may change based on site needs or district level directives. 
Additional lessons may be provided if there are identifiable needs at the our school site.
