Small groups provide an opportunity for additional learning experiences, practice, and support to strengthen student’s likelihood of success at school.  Students can receive small group counseling by parent, staff, or self-referral. Groups are on topics such as social skills, friendship, family changes, anger management, and self-esteem.  If you would like your child to participate in a small group, please contact either Mrs. Drobac or Mrs. Foytek at your earliest convenience.
