SEL4Newton is a citizen-driven initiative to reinforce the social-emotional learning (SEL) lessons taught in Newton Public Schools, develop emotional well-being in our children by practicing these acquired abilities within our homes and communities and develop strong cross-sector collaborations that will make Newton ‘A Social-Emotional Learning Community.’

Principals Value SEL
Principals say SEL is essential, but want more guidance, training and support to teach these skills effectively.
SEL Yields Returns
