Groups are held in the Counselor’s office during the students’ lunch times so as not to interfere with instructional time. Students are placed into groups of six to eight by grade level. We meet once a week for 6-8 weeks (with the exception of Banana Splits). If there is a group or a topic that you think would benefit your child, mark your first choice with a 1. You may wish to mark a second choice – in case the first fills up—with a 2. The week of the first group lesson, you will receive a permission form, including a more detailed description of goals and activities, to sign and return.
