“Godwin Heights Middle School will be implementing the Lions Quest curriculum to support our SEL education during advisory periods. With this curriculum, we will continue to encourage the development of community within advisory classrooms, the middle school, and our Godwin community as a whole. By developing positive social and emotional skills among students, between students and teachers, and within families, our goal is to support a sustainable, successful and enriched community as our students move forward in their personal and academic development.”
