Junior class counseling groups to run March 16, 23, and 30

The Newton North Counseling Department works not only to support juniors throughout their third year of high school, we also want to support parents/guardians as well. Therefore, a few counselors will facilitate a 3-week, Junior Parent Group, during the following consecutive Thursday mornings: March 16, March 23 and March 30.  The groups will be held at Newton North in the International Café from 9:05 a.m.-10:20 a.m.

This group will provide a forum for parents/guardians to talk to each other about what is going on with their junior and focus on a number of topics such as, Life at Newton North High School (Academic/Social), Internet Use/Social Networking/Texting, Emotional Health, Drug and Alcohol Use, Parties, Driving.
 
If you are interested in attending any or all of the groups, you can RSVP to Donna Harper, Counseling Department Secretary, at donna_harper@newton.k12.ma.us.
 
Please know that the Counseling Department understands that many parents/guardians cannot attend groups during the school day.  Unfortunately, we are bound by contractual limitations and cannot offer these groups in the evening.  If you cannot attend and you want any of the handouts that may be given during the groups, please contact Donna Harper. 
 
Take care,
