Girls Leadership: Raising Resilient Girls
Wednesday, Oct. 23
6:30 to 8 pm
PS 321

Between ages 10 and 13, girls’ confidence levels drop by 30%, and anxiety and depression rates in teen girls are double those of boys. Learn about the pressures that are unique to being a girl today and how you can help girls navigate these challenges with confidence. Girls Leadership’s Co-Founder and CEO Simone Marean will give her acclaimed parent education talk focusing on practical, actionable advice that you can use at home to help support the young girl or girls in your life. Her presentation covers the development of girl dynamics from preschool through high school.

Girls Leadership puts social and emotional learning (SEL) at the foundation of all our leadership development. We see girls’ real-life, every-day relationships with friends and family as the primary opportunity we have to teach girls the leadership skills that will serve them over a lifetime: self-advocacy, negotiation, compromise, personal responsibility and conflict as an opportunity for change. Our goal is to equip every girl with the courage, skills, and community to exercise the power of her voice.

$5 suggested donation. Open to the community. Childcare available for school-age children. This talk is for parents and educators, not children.

A Deep Dive into Your Child's IEP

Neuropsychologist Dr Claire Golden and Education Advocate Miriam Nunberg dive into the inner workings of your child's IEP. This workshop is for you if your child's IEP makes your head spin and you want to understand how to make sure your child is actually getting everything it requires, or if you want to strengthen it to better serve your child's needs.

 

Learn to read an IEP like a pro. The more you understand the IEP's terminology and concepts, the better you can advocate for your child.

In "Meet the Strings," we'll learn about the glorious string section and all the different ways the violin, viola and cello are used to make music. This concert features our BKCM String Quartet as we explore a range of styles and composers--from Mozart to bluegrass and Cuban Danzon to the Harry Potter movie score. We'll end with an instrument petting zoo so we can "Meet the Strings" up close! Halloween costumes are welcome (we'll have a spooky* string-music surprise)...  
 
Hope to see you there!
