Social Emotional Learning Awareness Week

Published: February 8, 2018

The State of Connecticut proclaimed February 7 to 14, 2018, Social Emotional Learning Awareness Week, a Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement initiative to celebrate and promote the benefits of SEL.

Quinnipiac’s School of Education, 370 Bassett Road, North Haven, will host a special event on Monday, February 12, from 10 am to noon, featuring speakers Scarlett Lewis and Senator Richard Blumenthal.

The Jesse Lewis Choose Love organization initiated a call to action urging students and educators to submit essays illustrating how the Jesse Lewis Choose Love movement impacts every day choices and lives. The Choose Love Formula focuses on four pillars: Courage + Gratitude + Forgiveness + Compassion in Action = Choosing Love. Students will share their creative writing on February 12, and all entries will be published in a book about SEL.

Scarlett Lewis, Chief Movement Officer of the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Organization, will speak about her journey after her son was killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School. She has transformed her painful loss into a powerful force for good through the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement.

US Senator Richard Blumenthal will discuss his commitment to social and emotional learning. He created the Jesse Lewis Empowering Educators Act to provide tools and training to support students’ SEL.
