I have just posted a link to Tri-County Community Action program.  This is a county-wide resource agency for fuel and electric assistance, housing info,Tamworth dental clinic, Blue Loon bus transportation  and lots of other helpful services for families.  Take a look.  If I can help with any of these issues, please give me a call.  That is one of my roles here at the school.
Welcome to the KRHS Social Work Blog and the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year.  Hope everyone has had a great summer and is ready for school to begin.  I look forward to reconnecting with students from last year, transfer students  and meeting the new class of 2017!  See you on September 3rd.

Connecting Home, School and Community

My role as school social worker is to provide students with social and emotional support to promote their academic success. I provide counseling and intervention services to students and support services to families who are experiencing challenges. This includes referrals to community resources and agencies that provide assistance in the areas of clothing, food, health and mental health, and other basic needs.
I work with students who are experiencing social and emotional issues that are interfering with adjustment and achievement in school such as:
Family change (divorce, separation, death)
Peer relationships (dating, friendships, conflict resolution)
Behavior issues
Poor attendance
Anger management
Unmet basic needs (food, shelter, clothing)
I am here as a resource for students and their families. Students are referred for social work services by teachers, guidance counselors, school nurse. parents or self-referred. Please feel free to contact me
with any questions or concerns that you have at 569-2055 or email me at spower@govwentworth.k12.nh.us.
