The Frances Xavier Warde School’s SET Program
The Frances Xavier Warde School’s Social Emotional Development and Technology Program (SET) is the collaboration among the Academic Technology Coordinators and FXW Psychologists at each campus. This partnership allows for discussions that cover the overlap between the devices we use, the social media we participate in, and the multiple forms of media surrounding us in our everyday lives. SET is an outreach program to bring discussions and resources to our FXW parents, and with this goal, our hope is that parents will attend and participate in the various talks and presentations planned over the course of the year.
FXW SET events for the 2016-17 school year will focus on helping students develop empathy in support of our diverse and inclusive culture. We hope that engagement in these events provides the impetus for ongoing discussions between school and home, between teachers and parents, and between teachers and students. For the upcoming year, we are offering a series of speakers, as well as grade-level specific parent coffees. Please add these dates to your calendars and plan to join us! Look for RSVP information closer to the date of each event.
