Counseling
Spring Group Counseling

Stress Management Group
High school students have a lot going on. Schoolwork and studying take up time, especially for honors or AP classes. Students have commitments after-school hours and are likely packed with extracurricular activities, a part-time job, a social life, and spending time with family. This could cause a lot of unwanted stress in a high schooler’s life.

Students will participate in adventure-based counseling, mindfulness, and stress management
skills activities in a small group setting for 6-8 weeks to support their understanding of stress
management. This group is open to 9th-12th grade students; groups will be upheld at different
times depending on numbers of students interested.

If you are interested in signing up for this group, please go to this link .
Time Management & Study Skills Group
Students support their own academic success through social emotional learning and academic readiness skills during each group session. Students will have personal reflections with others, track their own academic success and strategies used and support their own learning and growth with time management and studying.

This group is for 9th - 12th graders and is upheld during Miner Block over the Spring 2019
semester.

Please contact Ms. Jessica Koltz if you would like to be a part of either of these groups:
