Lindell is ‘Chalk-Full’ of Self-Expression


Lindell Elementary School continued its traditional “Chalk the Walk” activity on Sept. 21 as a way to emphasize social-emotional learning, self-awareness and empathy. The annual event reviews identifiers, associated vocabulary words and visual representations for an assortment of emotions.

Students explored a rainbow of feelings and learned to identify their own as well as recognize those in others. In the fresh air and sunshine, they expressed themselves through art using colored chalk. The sidewalks grounds were decorated with a collage of pictures. 

The district’s approach to social and emotional learning focuses on the key competencies of self-awareness, social awareness, relationship tools, responsible decision-making and self-management.
