At Lyons Middle Senior High School, we believe that social emotional learning is a priority for middle school students. We have designed the “Mindsets of a Lion” program around the research-validated 7 Mindsets Social and Emotional Learning curriculum.
On Late Start Wednesdays, students participate in an assembly, classroom lessons, outdoor activities, and group discussions as they explore each of the Mindsets of a Lion. This learning is designed to teach empathy, compassion, accountability, ownership, and connectedness – all ingredients of a well-rounded student.
We have a positive referral system that is built around the mindsets in order to celebrate the positive moments with students and families.
