Group Counseling for Fifth Graders
Check any groups that are interesting to you and that you would like to have
a chance to participate in. Groups will last about 4 weeks and will be
scheduled according to interest. We will cover as many as we can this year.
_____ Keeping Your Cool – if you struggle with anger
_____ What If… - for kids who worry too much and feel stressed out
_____ Substance Abuse Concerns – if you’re concerned about someone
who is important to you using alcohol or drugs
_____ Standing Up for Yourself – if you have a hard time with others
picking on you but you just let it go – learning to be assertive
_____ Where is My…? – getting organized in school and at home
_____ None at this time, thanks

classroom guidance and will take place during first semester.
All groups are optional.
Groups will be scheduled according to the topics of greatest interest and

needs, that’s fine also. Please return this form even if your
child will not participate so that I know you are aware of the
