Your son is welcome to participate in social skills group with Mr. Mike, our school counselor. The groups take place during lunch recess once a week for about 9 weeks. Each trimester there are different students participating in group to allow for as many as possible to attend. The purpose of the group is to increase the student's self awareness of themselves and life's challenges. The topics that may be explored are social skills, self-esteem, being attentive, making friends, coping skills, and confidence and team building. The boys engage in fun activities that encourage use of these skills previously mentioned.
The groups will be limited to the first 85 students who sign up and new students get first priority. Please turn in group permission slips signed by both parents by Thursday, September 1. Please log on as a parent on the school website, click on School Counselor link and then click on Permission Slip for Group. Print out one permission slip for each child and return it signed.
