The 10-week curriculum focuses on the whole girl - body, brain, heart, social, spirit - using fun games and activities to teach her how to set goals and boundaries, ask for and receive help, set up a support system, and more! Physical activity is woven into the program, helping the girls increase their strength and endurance for the Girls on the Run 5K on May 18. Registration is open! Go

Extra Credit Event:

Extra credit events will be listed here.  An extra credit event, is an event or activity that has to do with something we are learning about.  Some examples would be a Renaissance fair, art exhibit, play, culture fair, etc.  Extra credit option must be complete during a student's 7th grade school year.  Options for extra credit will be listed here.  Students may also suggest extra credit events as well but they must be approved ahead of time.   Students are allowed two extra credit events per trimester.  To Receive extra credit students must produce some sort of evidence that they have attended an event.  This evidence could be anything from a receipt to a Photo of you there having fun.  Finally when choosing events I prefer students find events they would not be required to do every year.  The idea behind an extra credit event, is for kids to experience new things and cultures.  If you have any questions feel free to ask.

 1. Northern California Renaissance Faire: September 15th-October 21st
