Sugar and Spice is a program designed to take place in middle school for girls only. The purpose of this group is to provide various lessons/topics in a group setting with their peers. At times there are personal issues that interfere with students’ learning. Therefore, we will discuss topics such as, but not limited to positive self-image, effective communication, conflict resolution, health & fitness, financial literacy, goal setting etc. The group will meet during school hours once a week approved by school administration that will not interfere with their academic studies. The goal of the program is to provide a social emotional learning curriculum specifically to meet the needs of girls in school that will encourage and inspire them to be model citizens in their community and beyond. It is our hope that a girl's attendance, grades and behavior will be impacted positively.
