This year, Pinewood will be partnering with Ele's Place, a healing center for grieving children, to offer services to students grieving a death. This program will be offered during the school day, once a week for 8 weeks and is designed to help students who have experienced the death of someone important to them. In small group sessions, students will have the opportunity to talk about their feelings and experiences with others who understand, express thier feelings through a variety of activities and learn positive coping skills. Groups will be lead by Ele's Place staff and KSSN Pinewood Staff Brad Vandenend.
Please contact Sarah Blystra our community school coordinator if you would like to sign your child up for this group.
