McAuliffe “C.A.R.E.S.”

This October McAuliffe 6th grade students participated in a Summit focused on character education. The 2018 McAuliffe 6th Grade Summit was aimed at developing social-emotional competencies, how the brain works, and creating a culture of inclusion, compassion, and empathy.

We are so proud of our students for their thoughtful approach to the work we did during this Summit.

Sixth-Grade Summit


In October, Oak Middle School hosted the very rst C.A.R.E.S. summit for all sixth- grade students. The summit was created to establish a foundation for all students at Oak so that together we can be a cohesive community that shows compassion, action, responsibility, empathy and support.

Students attended workshops throughout the school day that included tools for students to develop social/emotional skills. Social and emotional learning helps students to integrate skills, attitudes and behaviors to deal effectively and ethically with daily challenges. Workshops included developing skills in self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and responsible decision making. Mindfulness, creating connections and character/community building were just some of the highlights from the day.

Our goals are to be an inclusive campus where everyone belongs. The communication guidelines learned today will serve as a common language for all students and adults on the Oak campus. We thank LAEF and the Los Alamitos School District for their generous sponsorship of this program.
