Small groups are underway at each grade level and have covered topics including friendships and social media, coping skills, social skills and peer relations. Groups meet during morning homeroom, RTL, and during the lunch block.


If your child is interested in meeting with their school counselor one on one or in a small group, please have them reach out to their grade level counselor.
