Biddeford Primary School is a trauma responsive-school that teaches the whole child through equity, student voice, and choice. Students participate in lessons that teach about the functions of the brain, managing emotions, and building a healthy mindset.

Hello my name is Amanda Olson and I am excited to be teaching Social Emotional Learning (SEL) to all of the students at BPS this year. We will be using the Second Step Program to learn skills that can help in school and at home. We will be learning about respect, listening, focusing attention, making friends and problem solving.
The school counseling program aims to collaborate with educators, families, and community stakeholders, to create an environment that has a positive impact on student achievement. Through classroom guidance lessons, group, and one-on-one counseling, students will learn skillsets which help them thrive in a safe and inclusive learning environment and promote developmental interpersonal skills to build positive relationships with peers, adults, and their community.
