PWCS cares deeply about students’ emotional well-being during their time away from school.  If a student is in need of emotional support during this time, please feel free to send an e-mail to studentsupportservices@pwcs.edu.  A school mental health or health professional will answer and offer virtual support to students to the best of their ability.  This e-mail is not to be used for emergency situations as it will not be monitored 24 hours a day.  If a student is ever in an emergency situation he/she is encouraged to call 911 or utilize one of the resources listed below:

Small Group Options
Movement Group:
Our movement group is designed to help students who are developing their skills for coping with stressful situations or people, HELLO MIDDLE SCHOOL! Movement group is an exercise based small group that will utilize physical activity to help equip students with calm feelings and endorphins. Movement can reduce nervous tension and anxiety in muscles as well as release endorphins to help improve mood and energy levels. 

Some examples of our activities are: deep breathing, resistance band work, body weight work, large muscle movements, and stretching. 

The group will be facilitated by school counselors: Christina Bevilacqua, Taija Harris, and Erin McKibben.

Open to all students during advisory (8:30am-9:00am) every Thursday in the Lecture Hall.

Academic Group:
The academic group is designed for students who struggle with:

Turning in or completing assignments
Keeping track of work
Advocacy
Organization

And as a result have received F's on their report card for a core class. This group is coordinated by every school counselor and organized by alpha. Students who qualify will be invited to participate and given more information.
