Social Emotional Learning (SEL) at Hahaione

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Hahaione School started teaching the Choose Love program as a SEL curriculum from 2020-2021 school year.  All students are learning a lesson with their teacher or the counselor once a week.  We are excited to learn the Choose Love Formula that is important to live in a calm and peaceful way.  Please join the Choose Love at home, too.  If you have any questions, please contact our School Counselor.
