What is Lunch Bunch?
The main way elementary school counselors meet with groups at school is during lunch. We strive to not take students out of class unless absolutely necessary. If a student is struggling in any way socially, emotionally, or behaviorally, they may be invited to "Lunch Bunch". This does not mean your student has done anything wrong! There are many reasons why a student is invited, which usually involves a teacher referral. Teachers refer students who may desire additional adult attention, time to work on social skills, a place to practice problem-solving, or a space to reflect on feelings and how to manage them.

What happens in Lunch Bunch?
During lunch once a week, our counselor Ms. Corrine gathers group members from the lunchroom with their food to meet in an empty room in the main office to eat. The groups begin with "check-in" where each person gets to share how their week is going and if they have a problem or worry they want to talk about. After check-in, we play a game. The games vary but all involve communication skills, problem-solving, feelings expression and management, and other skills as needed. The students then go back to class when their lunch period is over.

How can I request my student join a Lunch Bunch group?
Feel free to call or email Ms. Corrine to see if your student can get into the next round of groups.
