Parent Involvement

Social Emotional Learning

In addition to our high expectations and focus on academics, the Round staff works to embed Social Emotional Learning (SEL) into our curriculum through the development of expertise in the areas of Empathy, Achievement, Grit, Links (relationships), Empowerment (leadership) and Service.  These values are the foundation of our E.A.G.L.E.S. SEL program.  We have developed a common language and partnered with Sensei in order to teach students the skills necessary to stand up for themselves and others, be courageous when attempting something new,  manage their emotions, maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. Round has a SEL team and a full-time social worker who develop student, family and staff support systems.

Michigan Green School

As part of Michigan’s Green School program, Round has been awarded the highest status as an Evergreen School for several years due to our dedication to practices that promote conservation and preservation of our environment. Included in these practices is our 4th grade recycling group.  Round recycles paper, markers, pens, and cans.  The staff and students are committed to limiting waste and reusing scrap paper whenever possible.

Watch D.o.g.s. (dads of great students)

WatchDOGS are fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other father-figures who volunteer for at least one day each year at school. During the day, WatchDOGS may read and work on flash cards with students, play at recess, eat lunch with students, watch the school entrances and hallways and assist with traffic flow. They actively engage with not only their own students, but other students as well. The students and staff enjoy having these role models available to support students regularly.
