Girls on the Run Weekly Newsletter

Letter to Parents/Guardians...

Dear Parent/Guardian,

This week’s topics are working together to unite as a GOTR team and identifying self-talk. In Lesson 3, the girls learn how to choose the right attitudes and actions that are best for helping their GOTR team work well together. Every girl has something unique to offer! We explore the importance of self-awareness and making intentional decisions through a variety of stations with team building exercises.

In Lesson 4, we discuss self-talk—what we think in our mind about ourselves or say aloud to others about ourselves. The girls learn strategies to help them turn any negative self-talk into positive self-talk! We explore this idea and practice these skills through different games and activities. Next week, we will be discussing what it means to be healthy.

Talk with your Girl on the Run…

1. What are some ways that you show everyone that you are choosing to be a Girl on the Run?

2. Let’s each name something we can intentionally do every day to show our gratitude for each other.

3. What is negative self-talk? What is positive self-talk?

4. Can you think of a signal or sound we can use if we catch each other saying something negative about ourselves?
