Ocean Township Schools participated in many activities that showed off our schools' abilities to practice mindfulness, collaborate with others, maintain positive relationships, make responsible decisions and achieve positive goals.  Each of our district's five schools worked in tandem to spread these messages all week, and especially on SEL Day.  Many of the schools celebrated by wearing spirit colors and positive messages.  Schools were decorated with inspirational messages.  All three elementary schools presented a virtual district wide assembly entitled
"Time to Shine".

Wayside Elementary School started their day with mindful meditation.  Ocean Township Elementary School had a dance party, mindful meditation and yoga on the playground.  Wanamassa Elementary School had in class SEL lessons.  Ocean Township Intermediate School had flash mob dancing throughout the day.  Ocean Township High School participated in a school wide Kahoot online quiz challenging students to work together to submit one answer per class on questions including academics, school history, Ocean Township history, sports and more!

The Ocean Township School district has embraced Social and Emotional Learning practices because they empower the whole school, whole child and whole community. They improve academic outcomes and classroom behavior for students.  Our students benefit from these practices because it enhances students' ability to succeed in school, careers and in life!
