National SEL Week Banner March 6 - 10

National SEL Week

Social emotional learning (SEL) changes lives. Studies show that SEL improves well-being and academic outcomes, builds a positive school climate, and provides children with the necessary skills to excel in today's workforce. Prince William County is excited to celebrate the first National SEL Week – Uplifting Hearts, Connecting Minds, March 6-10. National SEL Week is an expansion on International SEL Day, March 10, that has been celebrated for the past four years. Schools are encouraged to collaborate with their SEL Coaches in planning opportunities to raise SEL awareness, create artifacts demonstrating SEL in action and share SEL best practices.
