Only one thing is certain this school year, and that’s the fact that no one knows what to expect. Parents, students and staff are feeling apprehensive about what the transition to full-time, on-campus learning will look like. We may be eager for our kids to jump right back into academics to make up for a year of learning loss, but we also know that they need to feel safe, secure and emotionally ready. In today’s podcast episode, CHC’s Chief Education Officer, Christopher Harris, MEd and Kendra Evans Fraka, MSW discuss strategies for a successful start of school, including building a community of belongingness in the classroom, creating routine and consistency while helping kids stay flexible and adaptable, and celebrating the small wins along the way.
