SAS Middle School Girls Empowerment Activity
On Friday February 26, 2016 SAS Middle School hosted our Girl's Empowerment All Night Shut In Event. Our school counselor, art, and music teachers planned this event and had a wonderful turn out! 60+ 5th-8th graders got together to enjoy an evening of fun. Most importantly, however, our goal was to teach these girls how to embrace the message of being a strong, confident young woman through positive self image, communication, compassion, and respect for themselves and others. Our evening began with dinner for the girls, and a talk over tea and coffee with the parents and school counselor. We had the pleasure of hosting presenters from Contact Community Services, Theta Phi Beta Sorority, and Onondaga Community College throughout the evening. Our young female students listened to the powerful message of each presenter, telling them to stand out and be confident in their own shoes. The girls also had the opportunity to spend time with their friends, and make new ones, through games, dancing and listening to music, doing makeovers, and much more! Overall, the evening was a great success!
