Secrets of Friendship

This engaging curriculum gives your child the key "secrets" to making and maintaining a friendship. After determining who is a friend, students participate in engaging learning opportunities to explore how to make and maintain the friendship over time. The curriculum focuses on both explicit and non-explicit social skills that are required to make and maintain positive relationships. Based on the current circumstances, special emphasis will be placed on navigating friendships in a virtual environment.

Offered virtually Saturday mornings for 12 weeks starting September 26 - December 19
