The Riverview School District understands the importance of providing Social Emotional Learning (SEL) to every student, and uses the Second Step curriculum in K-5 classrooms. Your school counselor plans classroom visits with each teacher, allowing her to build relationships with students and staff while teaching important topics throughout the year.
- Skills for Learning
- Emotion Management

In the K-2 classrooms, we use Kelso’s Choice to help students learn effective problem-solving.
Student’s learn the difference between big problems (things that are dangerous and require adult assistance) and small problems that can be solved by them by using one of 9 choices. We encourage our students to attempt to solve their small problems by using a couple of the choices before asking an adult for help. This increases their sense of ability, and encourages them to think about appropriate ways to handle everyday situations that arise.
