MS 88 fosters SEL learning through a school-wide Core Values Program, an SEL elective class and the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum. They are also one of the schools participating in the Mutt-i-grees Student Ambassador program which helps to support our mission by empowering students of all ages allowing them to make a difference in their community.
The Mutt-i-grees Curriculum perfectly supports their SEL and service learning initiatives teaching empathy and trust through the use of the rescue animal. MS 88 recently held an adoption event with NSALA’s support in their neighborhood where the students took the lead in promotion and execution. The event resulted in finding 9 animals loving forever homes!
