Ogden School presents a program each year to provide support to children who have experienced a loss as a result of their parents' separation or divorce, or the death of a close loved one.
The Rainbows program consists of twelve sessions, divided into two six-week semesters. Small groups of children from similar age categories meet once a week and share an activity which focuses on a theme related to their needs. The groups are led by trained adults.
The adults, as well as the children, are bound by confidentiality which fosters trust and provides a safe atmosphere for sharing. The groups meet during the lunch hour or after school from 3:15 - 4:00. Children involved know the schedule and their parents have been contacted, as this is not an open participation group.
Contact the school for more information
