Good morning Ross Road parents and guardians,
Here is the schedule of upcoming after school programs offered for the Fall term 2019 at Ross Road Elementary.
These programs have been organized and coordinated by your Ross Road school PAC.
GRIT for Girls (previously called Girls with Grit)
September 23 – December 9 (10 sessions; no class October 14th and November 11th)
3:00-4:30pm in Ross Road School Music Room
Program Description: Let’s raise a generation of kids who are mentally happy and healthy, who know it’s okay to be strong and soft at the same time, who know how to deal with adversity, and who are totally in-tune with their unique awesome-ness.
At Grit Vancouver, we use yoga to show how strong our bodies are, mindful meditation (aka #braintrain) to show how strong our spirits are, and awesome crafts to show how strong our creative sparks are.
We also talk about real topics like friendships/relational aggression, anxiety + mental health, stress, pressure, gender stereotypes, technology, compassion, empathy and what being an authentic human is really all about.
Oh yeah – we also laugh a lot! And we’d love you to join us.
