Social Emotional Learning (SEL) at Hahaione
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 Ms. Kyoko Heberle, School Counselor.

PROGRAM AT A GLANCE
The Choose Love For Schools Program is a Pre-K through 12th grade curriculum that emphasizes the simple, universal teachings of courage, gratitude, forgiveness, and compassion in action. The lessons are divided into these four units, which create a formula for choosing love:
The Choose Love Formula™
Courage + Gratitude + Forgiveness + Compassion in Action = Choosing Love
The Choose Love For Schools Program teaches the foundational concepts and skills of social and emotional learning (SEL), and is informed by current neuroscience. The goal of the program is to provide children with the knowledge, attitude, and skills they need to choose love in any situation. These abilities include:
Understanding and managing emotions (self-awareness and self-management);
Setting and achieving positive goals;
• Feeling and displaying empathy and compassion for others (social awareness);
Establishing and maintaining positive relationships; and,
Making responsible decisions.
