The counselors are beginning to schedule small group sessions for this school year. Small groups allow students to meet with the counselor to share feelings, learn a specific skill, or meet a specific need. Small groups usually consist of 4-10 students and meet 1 time per week for 4-6 weeks. Students are usually pulled out of an elective class in order to participate.
Students should review this year's small group topics and complete this form as soon as possible if they would like to participate.
