Small Groups and Guidance
Small group counseling services are offered for students that need additional support in a specific social or academic area. Children are selected through teacher recommendation and parent request. Parental permission is required for student participation in a small group. Typically these groups meet once a week for 30 minutes over five to six weeks.
All sessions are confidential. In the event that Mrs. Weeks feels a child is in danger, of any kind, confidentiality will be breached.
