Running Buddies/Contribution to Celebration
Our 5K and Celebration are fast approaching. We are asking families of our girls on the run to donate $5 toward supplies for the celebration, please make contribution if you haven't done so already! Thanks so much!
Letter to Parents/Guardians...
In our lesson, the girl’s explore different ways bullying can occur—physical, verbal and emotional. We also discuss tactics to use when being bullied or witnessing someone else being bullied. We encourage the “SBLR Strategy” from last week’s lesson as an effective way to respond to bullying.
In Thursday's lesson, we will take time to celebrate all the unique and special gifts we have along with honoring our friendships. We play a fun game that allows the girls express the different strengths and talents they love most about one another. Next time will be our last practice before the final celebration. Stay tuned!
