Remembrance Groups are offered through the HMS Guidance Department for any students who are grieving the loss of a loved one. Using materials developed by Rainbows, an international organization that assists young people with loss, the goals of the groups are:
- to acknowledge grieving as a normal response to loss
- to provide an opportunity for emotional healing
- to honor and preserve memories of loved ones
- to teach appropriate coping mechanisms
The group is voluntary and confidential and meets once a week for approximately 12 weeks.
If you are interested in having your child participate in a Remembrance group at HMS, please call Mrs. Mahler at 431-6600 ext. 2296 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
