Counseling Small Groups

                Lanier Middle School Small Groups is a time where students sign
                up through a student needs assessment at the beginning of the 
                year to give the counselor's an idea of what their needs are. 
                Counselors then collect the data and form small group depending
                on student needs.  The Counseling Department incorporates the
                following skills in each group to help promote student growth:
                Courage, Authenticity, Service, Truthfulness, Love, and
                Effectiveness. The following groups will be held this year to best
                serve student needs.
