Weavers

Weavers is a teacher-directed support/discussion group offering an environment for children who have experienced the divorce of their parents or have lost a parent to death. Our group leaders are trained to facilitate discussions and experiences so that a child may acknowledge and work through his/her feelings, thoughts and emotions and to help the child to “weave” all aspects of his/her new life into a positive experience. If you feel your child may benefit from this group, please contact either your child’s teacher or Mr. Spillman. This fall, a Weavers group will be offered for both young students (grades 1-4) and older students (grades 5-8).
