Participating in Fox Friends is a fun way for students to make new friends and practice their social skills in a safe, small group setting. Children are invited to participate in Fox Friends for a variety of reasons. A few examples include: a child who is shy or often appears to play alone during free choice time or recess, a child exhibiting behaviors that unknowingly (to the child) “turn off” others, a child who repeatedly complains of not having any friends, a child who has a hard time initiating friendships, a child who lacks self-confidence, and/or who needs a confidence boost, or a child who is very accepting and easily befriends other children (always a very beneficial addition to a group). Role models are welcome!
In Soda Pop Heads students will learn to recognize signs that they are becoming angry, identify underlying emotions, and practice coping skills to keep them from blowing their bottle cap. This group is for students who are having difficulty controlling their anger.
Worry warriors is being offered for the first time this year. This is a group where students struggling with anxiety can support each other, learn to recognize triggers and signs of increasing anxiety, and practice grounding techniques.
Banana splits is another new group this year. This is a support group for any students whose parents are separated or divorced. The divorce need not be recent for students to participate.
Other groups may be added as needed.
*Group materials are available for parent review upon request
