East Allen County Schools Families,

During the month of November, it is always a great time to reflect on all the things that we are thankful for during the year.  I am so appreciative of the students, staff, parents, and community members of East Allen County Schools.   I see firsthand how fortunate we are to be surrounded with good people who truly want success for all of our students.  As I am out in the buildings or at community events, it never stops amazing me how focused we all are on making East Allen County Schools the best possible place to educate our students.  Thank you for everything you do to support our students and our schools!

East Allen County Schools recognizes the importance of meeting the needs of the whole child. You may have noticed on our EACS website under the
arent and staff ribbons a section called “Social and Emotional Learning”.  Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) can be defined as the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.

There are many benefits of social-emotional learning interventions including increased academic performance, increased graduation rates, better employability
 skills, less substance abuse, less juvenile crime, reduction in stress, and many other positive long-term effects lasting into adulthood.

We will continue to share more on SEL with you in the future. In the interim, feel free to connect with our SEL coaches for more information as well as visit the EACS website.

Again, I want to take a moment to just THANK All of YOU for the many things you do to support our schools.

Please remember that Thanksgiving Break will be from Wednesday, November 25 – Sunday, November 29.

With a thankful heart,

Marilyn S. Hissong
