SA transition program - Middle school to High school

The High School group will help to ease the transition from Middle school to High school for any students requiring this support, as identified by the school. The group will run for 4-5 weeks. 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 High 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 High school
· Location of classrooms, gym, cafeteria, library, washrooms (this will be done either in person or virtually - tour of school)
· School rules & traditions
· Class schedules (if possible)
· Extracurricular opportunities (i.e., sports, groups, clubs)
· Any other concern identified by the students throughout the sessions
