My Students

Beginning in 2013, a group of teachers and parent volunteers came together to form the first Girl Power group at Woodstock Elementary School. In our first year running the program, we had 33 enthusiastic 4th grade girls registered to participate and had a very successful year. Now in 2018, we currently have 39 girls eagerly participating in the program and are looking forward to yet another great Girl Power season.

Our Girl Power group consists of highly motivated girls willing to push themselves and each other to become the best they can be physically, socially and emotionally.

They encourage each other to maintain healthy friendships while learning about their own relationships with fitness and health.

Our girls are unique. They come in every shape and size, but the one thing that they have in common is the drive to have fun and be part of a program that will hopefully change their social perspectives. This positive way of thinking will help them make the transition easier from an elementary school setting to middle school.

My Project

Everything we do in Girl Power is for the betterment of our girls. Our time, money and commitment to the outcome of the program and the success of each and every member is of the greatest importance. We want to ensure that each girl of Girl Power sets an attainable goal whether that be in relation to having healthier friendships or possibly more stamina when running and participating in physical activity. We want to give each girl the means to meet their individual goals and are asking for your assistance.

In order to educate our girls about relationships, fitness and health we look to the community for help.

We have scheduled a certified nurse to talk to the girls about health and hygiene regimens and various certified fitness instructors to show the possible range of fitness programs available to them such as yoga, Zumba and Pound. It must be noted that each of these wonderful "educators" are volunteering their time to our program.

As we educate our girls, we would also like to give them the tools to implement what they have learned. We are asking for financial assistance to purchase "hygiene bags" for each of the girls. The bags include toiletries such as deodorant, shampoo and conditioner and toothpaste. We would also like to purchase finisher medals for each of the girls so that when they complete the Jog with Judy 5K in May, they will have a memento to signify their dedication to Girl Power and their physical accomplishments.
