Girls’ Leadership, our time together is coming to an end! Our last meeting will be this Friday during periods 2 and 3 in the library! We have a very fun activity planned, so we will see you during periods 2 and 3 in the library this Friday!
Also, our conference is finally here! This Saturday, we are meeting at Kennett High School at 9:00 to board the bus. So, remember, we are meeting at the high school, NOT the middle school, on Saturday. If you haven’t handed in your conference permission form, please do so as soon as possible in guidance!
The KMS Girls’ Leadership program is doing a service project to promote women’s education throughout the world. They are focusing on an all girl’s school in rural India called the Pardada Pardadi School. This school was created in a village where girls were not able to be educated, but could only be slaves. Now these girls can go to school, but they do not have all the gifts we have. For instance, these girls have to sit on floors all day because there are no desks, but they are still happy to be in school and happy to learn.
Our Girls’ Leadership program is collecting donations for new and used school supplies to be sent to their friends at the girl’s Indian school. They are also collecting fun things that girls may like, such as hair accessories and fashion jewelry. Please drop off your donations to the collection box in the Guidance office.
Thank you for your help, and for helping women’s education throughout the world!
