Lanesboro Elementary School News

This year our kindergarten through 8th grade started to work with the Second Step Program. This past spring, with funding from a Bullying Prevention Grant through Fillmore County, Lanesboro Schools received training on the Second Step Program. The Second Step Program is a researched-based universal prevention program that is designed to decrease aggressive and bullying behaviors, along with increasing students' skills and school related successes. This is a yearlong program that includes units and interactive lessons with strategies to engage student interests through all aspects of school.

In September, there was an informational meeting for parents and students where Heidi Johnson, Lanesboro's school psychologist, gave a power point presentation on the Second Step Program. During our fall workshop, school staff was trained on the curriculum. Staff members were unfamiliar with the Second Step Program, but after training, teachers were excited because of the user friendliness of the program and the interactive lessons that could be incorporated into their teaching day.

Parents and caregivers serve as the primary and most consistent teacher and role model for their children and they play a vital role in their child's social skills development. Therefore, the Second Step Program facilitates the school in providing information to families that will allow for a more comprehensive approach to effective implementation. Along with the informational meeting to introduce this program, Lanesboro Schools will be continuing to send home parent letters that help develop skills being discussed in school as well as at home. There is also a link with extension activities found on the school website. We encourage families to utilize this as it can help provide a link between school and home.

Throughout the first quarter, students have been working on empathy building. Lessons focus on understanding your own feelings by listening to your body so you are able to make good decisions. Another aspect of this unit is to learn how to read the body language of others. We are also focusing on reinforcing appropriate behavior in the classroom, outside at recess, on the school bus, or in the lunchroom. The staff and students look forward to continuing with this program as the year progresses.
