Addressing Social, Emotional and Spiritual Learning Through Advisories 

Date: Wednesday, November 8 at 6:00 p.m. ET

Speakers: Christine Buell, Assistant Principal for Student Life, Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory, San Francisco, CA, and Nicole Nastari, Dean of Students, Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory, San Francisco, CA 

While the concept of advisories is not new, we have reconfigured them to provide a vehicle by which to address the social and emotional needs that have emerged for our students from the pandemic. As current research has suggested, teenagers are more anxious than ever and in need of more support and education.

Advisories create a space in which we can promote wellness strategies, address social-emotional learning and deepen community connections across class levels. Throughout the school year, we use the time and space in advisory to explore various topics, including diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, positive relationship strategies, neurodiversity, stress management, mindfulness and community-wide spirit activities. Furthermore, advisories create high-impact leadership opportunities that further promote the development of intellectual, social and emotional skills. We will cover the practicalities of organizing lesson plans, selecting and training student advisory leaders and community-wide involvement that make this programming so effective.

The Eucharistic Revival: Our Role in Lasallian Education

Date: Tuesday, September 12 at 6:00 p.m. ET

Speaker: Brother Mark Engelmeyer, FSC, Religion Teacher, Central Catholic High School, Pittsburgh, PA

With churches having empty pews during Mass, many Catholics not having an understanding of the Eucharist, and more and more young people disaffiliating from the Church, the United States Bishops have called for a three-year Eucharistic Revival. As one of the largest Catholic high school networks in the United States, we as Lasallians have a great opportunity to play a pivotal role in helping the young entrusted to our care rediscover and grow in their love of Our Lord in the Eucharist.  

Based in the teachings of Saint John Baptist de La Salle, this session will help educators effectively incorporate the Eucharistic Revival into their schools.

Webinar recording is coming soon!
