The school counseling program in the Upper St. Clair School District offers your child emotional and academic support in a variety of ways. This includes collaboration and consultation with teachers and staff, individual counseling on an as needed bases, classroom guidance lessons, and small group lessons.
The small group program can help to reinforce skills and learning without the intimidation of a large group setting. We emphasize that groups are for everyone, and participating does not indicate a problem. We believe that students can learn from one another and enhance their self-concepts in a supportive group setting.Often, a student’s peer can serve as a positive role model or offer understanding and a new perspective. Because of this, we like to give all students this unique opportunity and may invite your child to join us for one or more sessions. Groups meet throughout the school year, typically during DEAR time, lunch or recess, for twenty to thirty minutes.If you would NOT like your child to participate as a role model/supportive peer in the small group program, please complete THIS FORM and return it to Eisenhower Elementary School as soon as possible.
