Cesar Chavez Elementary School is part of the Greenfield Union School District in Greenfield, California. The counseling department serves students from T-K through 6th grade. Mental health has had a huge impact on students at Cesar Chavez Elementary School. The project consists of a four-week counseling session with a group of 4th-grade students that are considered high-risk according to the CoVitality Survey they take. This process will have lessons that will help them improve on an area of concern with mental health. It is expected that for the next CoVitality Survey, the students are not at high risk. The outcome of the project was that three of the five students were not at high risk for the second survey. The school system should keep using the CoVitality Survey to know who are the students that need more support so that it can be provided to them.
