Game Day Group is an activity group for all students looking to bond with peers, make new friends, and form meaningful relationships through a common interest. This group will meet once a week on Mondays and will be focused on playing various board and card games with peers. Through playing games, students will have the opportunity to comfortably interact with others and form friendships that might have been otherwise too difficult. Having a common interest will promote a feeling of safety in a social setting and help those that struggle to connect to others build relationships.
