Banana Splits is back for students in grades 3-5. This group is designed for children whose family has experienced a change either through the death of a parent, separation, divorce and/or remarriage. Banana Splits is a support group for children to share feelings with other children experiencing similar family changes. The group meets once per MONTH during lunch. Children may participate as often or as seldom as they choose. The group has an open-door policy for children to participate at their own comfort level. Banana Splits groups will begin meeting in Mrs. Elliott’s office on Monday, October 7. All grade levels will meet the first school Monday of the month. If your child is interested in attending, please encourage him/her to join us for our first meeting. I look forward to working with the Banana Splits group! If your child would like to speak with me individually about family changes, I am more than happy to do so. Parents or children are always welcome to contact me with any concerns.
