Our first Girl Up Club was September 11, 2018. We had 14 girls come. Ms Winter, our enthusiastic EWMS Chorus teacher and Girl Up sponsor and Ms Rita Rakestraw, our PTA President, taught the girls about world cultures. We did a craft activity of painting rocks. Their favorite activity was learning how to make homemade salsa! Ms Priscilla Williams, our PTA Secretary volunteered with the girls too.
Aeryka a 6th grader said said it was “EXCITING!” She added, “I loved that we all were talking together. Everyone was so nice. I like that we are gonna do different fun activities this year.”
Our next meeting will be Wednesday October 17 the girls were tickled pink when it was announced that we will have a guest speaker by Skype. Nehal Jain, a freshman at Duke and is the President of the Girl Up Club at Duke and she is going to Skype call our meeting next month to tell us about herself and tell us about some fun things we can do in our Girl Up Club and how we can help girls in other countries.
