Our mission is to inspire a community of life- long learners by nurturing their innovation, creativity and social-emotional well-being in a diverse and inclusive environment.
Social Emotional Learning at Waterside
Brain Power Wellness teaches physical and mental brain breaks, mindfulness practices, and social emotional wellness strategies that support a positive classroom atmosphere. We partner with Teachers, Students, Parents, and Administrators to create a sustainable, healthy, happy and focused school environment.
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-basedthree-tiered framework to improve and integrate all of the data, systems, and practices affecting student outcomes every day. PBIS creates schools where all students succeed
Restorative Justice (Team Time)
Restorative justice empowers students to resolve conflicts on their own and in small groups, and it’s a growing practice at schools around the country. Essentially, the idea is to bring students together in peer-mediated small groups to talk, ask questions, and air their grievances.
Schools can teach Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) through the development of curriculum & activities focused on the personal and interpersonal leadership capacity of students, staff, and families. Learn more about SEL and how Leader in Me, a CASEL-endorsed SEL program, helps prepare students for life success.
Every classroom at WCSS will have this space as a safe place for students to get centered, reflect, or take a couple of minutes of themselves.
