Welcome to a brand new school year! This class will provide you with a place to come together and work on your social language skills. You will learn the strategies needed to equip you with options when interacting with those around you on a daily basis. Having good social skills can improve your relationships with others, improve your communication, increase your overall happiness, build self- esteem and build your confidence when dealing with others.
Why do you need social skills?
Social skills are the skills we use to communicate and interact with each other, both verbally and non-verbally, through gestures, body language and our personal appearance. Having good communication helps us take personal responsibility for ourselves, appreciate and respect other people’s perspectives, communicate effectively with others, and manage conflicts wisely. By practicing and modeling good verbal and non-verbal communication, you will have the knowledge and strategies you need to be successful in everyday interactions with employers, teachers, siblings, parents, and friends.

I require all students to participate and give full effort on all assignments, activities and homework.
