Ferrisview Transition Program - Elementary to Middle School

The Middle School group will help to ease the transition from Elementary to Middle school for any students requiring this support, as identified by the school. The group will run for 4 weeks in July and August. The goal for this group is to help the students feel more comfortable during their transition in September. We will discuss concerns and stressors prior to entering Middle School, coping strategies to help alleviate stress, and resources within the school.
Topics of discussion may include:

· Stress (understanding healthy vs. unhealthy amounts of stress)
· Coping strategies
· Expectations for Middle school
· Location of classrooms, gym, cafeteria, library, washrooms (this will be done by doing an in-person tour or a virtual tour, depending on where things are with restrictions)
· School rules & traditions
· Lockers/opening locks (this is often a concern for many students)
· Class schedules (if possible)
· Extracurricular opportunities (i.e., sports, clubs)
· Any other concern identified by the students throughout the sessions
