Counseling Services coming to St. George School

I am so excited to announce that we will have three counselors/therapists available to our students and families. Through leadership from Catholic Charities and a grant from Sutter Health, three therapists will be assigned to our school and can meet with students regularly (with parent permission). The counselors are also able to provide counseling for families or groups. The counselors are coming to give a presentation and give out the counseling permission slips. We need a completed permission slip for EVERY child. Parents have the option to decline or accept counseling for their child.

Art Classes for St. George Students at St. Mary's High School

The art teacher at St. Mary's is running an art program just for our students in grades 2-8. Please see the form in your child's backpack or pick one up from the office.
