Student Support Groups

  • The Discovery Elementary School Counselor will be offering student support groups throughout the school year. Student support groups provide a safe, supportive environment where students can share their feelings and learn important tools and strategies that support their social-emotional development.

    For additional information, please feel free to contact me at (208) 855-4092.
