    Welcome Message:
    Hello my name is Yesenia Garcia-Barca and I am the School Social Worker in your building. I am excited about the opportunity to work with you and your children to support their social/emotional growth during their time at Wappingers Junior High School. At WJHS, we believe in serving the whole child. Should your student have any needs that impact their school funtioning, please reach out to myself or their School Counselor. We are happy to direct you to the person best able to help your child navigate the dynamics of their junior high school experience. Looking forward to supporting your child in the best way that we can.
