Second semester small group counseling sessions will begin in February. The purpose of counseling groups is for children to gather in small groups to learn and share about common school, social or family issues. Please refer to the group list below. If you feel your child could benefit from one of the following groups, please sign and return the form to their classroom teacher by February 13th. Students will meet once a week for thirty minutes. Students will be required to make up any missed class work. If you have any questions, please contact me at 364-8080 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sincerely, Karen Shaia School Counselor KES
