Girls going into 4th and 5th grade will spend a week stepping into their strong, authentic selves. Through games, role-play, art, heart talks, and time outdoors, girls will develop tools to:
•    navigate challenging or changing friendships
•    assert their needs and desires
•    be true to themselves by discovering who they really are
•    stick up for themselves and others
•    take risks and expand their comfort zones
•    build confidence


We are sharing information this week about Mountain Freshies in an effort to support local agriculture, as eating mindfully is important to the health and wellbeing of our community members and natural resources.  Interested parents should please contact Nancy Scheinkman, as 5% of the membership fees will be donated to Aspen Community School, in honor of Annie Teague, and the funds will be used to support Annie’s Garden.

Theatre Aspen is operating out of Aspen Community School this summer.  There will be a bus going back and forth to Aspen.  Sign your student up now for summer classes. Music Festival Summer Programs for Local Youth.
