PARENT SUPPORT GROUP

The Hunterdon Preparatory School's counseling department is offering a virtual parent support group for the 2022/2023 school year! We will offer four “rounds” throughout this school year.  The first “round” (consisting of 4 sessions) will begin next week.

What is parent support group?  It is a virtual support group offered to all parents of current HPS students. Parent support group is facilitated by one of the HPS counselors.

What is the purpose? It gives you an opportunity to connect with other parents and share your experiences, ask questions, offer support/advice, learn from others and discover that you are not alone! 

The HPS support group may even create a feeling of belonging for you. Additionally, it may give you a chance to talk to others who understand the rewards and challenges of parenting a child who needs a certain type of social/emotional/academic/behavioral support.

What is the format and where/when will it happen?  Parent support group will be offered virtually via Zoom or Google Meet.  A link will be sent out prior to each group session. The meeting starts at 7:00 pm and is a one-hour session.

When is the first “round” of four parent support groups? 

Thursday, October 13th 

Thursday, October 20th 

Thursday, October 27th 

Thursday, November 3rd 

How do I sign up?  Please RSVP to Amanda Medina at amedina@hunterdonprep.org  by the Wednesday PRIOR to the support group. For instance, RSVP by Wednesday, October 12th for the first session. Please note that parent support group works best when there are at least 4 parents (from different families) in attendance.

We look forward to meeting with you all! If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to Amanda Medina at amedina@hunterdonprep.org.
