Bulldog Families

Staff members at Seal Elementary will lead a Bulldog Family of around 8 students from different grade levels. These students will remain in that specific “family” until they leave Seal and enter middle school!  The hope is to provide a positive and supportive setting while creating cohesiveness throughout all grade levels for both staff and students. As well as, creating an atmosphere for open communication where social/emotional and character skills can be explored ; so that students can apply these skills in order to function at their highest potential.  

 

7 Habits of a Happy Kid.

Habit 1-Be Proactive

Habit 2-Begin with the End in Mind

Habit 3-Put First Things First

Habit 4-Think Win Win

Habit 5-Seek First to Understand then be Understood

Habit 6-Synergize

Habit 7-Sharpen the Saw
