Second Semester Elementary Counseling Groups

Over the winter and during the spring, many small counseling groups went on in both elementary schools.  The group topics were selected based on feedback from parents, students, and teachers. It was exciting to work with so many students in a small setting and work on skills to help them be successful in many areas of their lives.  On the last day of the group, all students who were present completed a group assessment.
