Alpine Chocolat Haus Fundraiser

Our annual Alpine Chocolat Haus Fundraiser has wrapped up. We truly appreciate the strong support for our fundraiser this year. As of March 2nd we were very close to our fundraising goal. Students have been very excited to dye Mr. Byram's hair if the school reaches their mark. We have not yet released the results of the school wide vote for hair color, but student feedback suggests rainbow...

Below are the dates as well as a link to better explain our chocolate pick up procedure:

Counselor Corner

Now that our Counseling Department has expanded, we are hoping to offer peer groups in the next coming months. The potential peer groups we will be forming will focus on a social skill group and a group focusing on appropriate ways to handle anxiety. Groups are a safe place to talk about feelings, to learn and practice new coping/social skills, and to develop positive relationships with other children. Positive interaction and mutual respect are encouraged within the group setting. Participation in a small group builds self-esteem and respect for others. If you are interested in your child being a part of a group or have questions please feel free to reach out to Kate Martell or Sarah Skowronski at 989-731-0856.
