Social & Emotional Climate

Social & Emotional Climate

It’s All About Kids staff will work collaboratively with Tulsa County schools to provide a positive social and emotional climate. Students need a safe and supportive learning environment to be successful. IAK staff strives to engage students in activities, help students build relationships with their peers and teachers, and provide tools for achieving academic success.

Our staff is available to attend Healthy and Fit School Advisory Commitee and/or Safe School Commitee meetings as their schedules allow. We will provide feedback and resources as requested. Please see our Contact page to reach out to IAK staff for your school regarding scheduled meeting dates and times.
