Lunch Bunches

Grades 2-5

-a small group session designed to boost self-esteem, improve social skills, and increase peer relations.   Lunch Bunch also gives me, the school counselor, the opportunity to spend time with every student in the school and build a trusting relationship. Everyone will attend at least one Lunch Bunch, and activities will focus on a variety of topics related to the academic, career, and personal/social development of ALL students.


Kindergarten Snack Pack

-a first time visit to the school counselor's office!  I will introduce myself to our kindergarten students as a friend, helper, listener, and problem solver.  


First Grade Buddy Bunch

-a small group designed to help first grade students learn the meaning and responsibilities of friendship.  Buddy Bunch lessons will consist of activities that not only teach friendship skills, but allow group members to become better acquainted with each other and show appreciation for each other’s differences.
