Social Support Groups 

Social Support Groups Social support groups are designed around individual student needs and are offered throughout the year to work on individual and group goals. These groups often incorporate a variety of play, art, or project-based approaches to help children with their social and emotional growth. Parent permission is required for participation in a group. Group offerings and themes may vary by school and may change throughout the year to meet the social-emotional needs of our students.
