Social Emotional Learning
School Guidance Counselors
Each of the four schools in Eatontown Public Schools have a Lighthouse Team, an SEL-forward committee consisting of the building principal, guidance counselor, and other staff members. Each Lighthouse Team creates Leadership, Academic, and Culture goals that focus on equity, inclusion, and student social and emotional well-being. The purpose of the Lighthouse Team in each school is to coordinate the implementation of the Leader In Me process at a balanced pace to achieve desired results.
