Small Group Classes

Our school counselor, Katie Barker, offers a variety of small group classes. This year the available classes are Fox Friends (friendship/social skills), Soda Pop Heads (anger management), Worry Warriors (anxiety), and Banana Splits (divorce/separation). Spaces are limited to 8 students per class. Usually, 2 different groups will be offered each block. Referrals may be submitted at any time and your student will be invited to participate the next time that group is offered. Please fill out the recommendation form below to request enrollment for your student.

Students participating in groups need to have permission from their parent/guardian. If your student has been invited to join a group, please fill out the appropriate permission slip and return it to Katie Barker as soon as possible.
