Social Emotional Learning


Bowman uses the CORE Essential Values Curriculum to teach students the Big 3 Ideas.  

  • Treat Others Right (Relationships)

  • Make Smart Decisions (Choices)

  • Maximize Potential (Skills)

Each month students are introduced to a CORE Value.  They learn about the value in four simple steps. These steps are taught through classroom lessons, video lessons, activities, visual resources, morning announcements and family newsletters. 

  • Say It (Define)

  • Know It (Evaluate)

  • See It (Encourage)

  • Be It (Decide)
