Second Step/Restorative Practices





Second Step and Restorative Practices are two new programs at Charles W. Henry School!

Restorative Practices: Restorative practice is a strategy that seeks to repair relationships that have been damaged, including those damaged through bullying. It does this by bringing about a sense of remorse and restorative action on the part of the offender and forgiveness by the victim.

Second Step: When students enter kindergarten with the self-regulation and social-emotional skills taught in the evidence-based Second Step Program, they’re set up for success. Our early learning products are easy for anyone to use and are designed to keep children engaged.
