Girls Learn New Skills Through Workshop

Elementary South held a “Stand in Your Power” workshop for fifth-grade girls on February 8. During the interactive hour, the girls learned to use tools to help them in challenging situations, such as feeling excluded, coping with mean girls and queen bees, and friendship cliques. One of the things they learned was to take a step back from friendship drama by being more grounded in themselves. In the meantime, fifth-grade boys learned skills through fun activities that emphasized camaraderie and teamwork. The school also held a “Stand in Your Power” workshop for parents, to help them know what to say when their daughters needed help.
