Hi Poohpunkie-thank you for friending me, and for the suggestions. After reading some of the posts, I called the superintendent of our district, I am in Middlesex County, NJ and am waiting for a call back this week.. OUrs is a very large town and we really could use a support group as the counselors have not really helped to much this year. I did reach out to them and they are aware of the girls situation, however am convinced that they need a program in the school as well. Will keep you posted as to the outcome. Debbie
