Create Confidence with Girls Club’s Back to School DIY Workshops

girls club teamwork
Health educator Cindy Williams recently started Girls’ Club, a program in the Conejo Valley that helps girls find their inner strength, make good choices, and become confident. At first she led the groups as part of after-school enrichment classes, but now she’s running fun arts & crafts workshops at Create Studio in Westlake Village. “I love working in the school, but by teaching at the studio, it gives me a chance to reach a much broader group of girls,” she says. “We even had a family from Studio City drive out for the class!”

The workshops take place for 2 weeks on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. If I had a daughter, I would definitely sign her up. Williams has a broad mission in mind. “This is a passion project for me. I have had the opportunity and pleasure, over the past few years to watch more than a few shy, quiet girls, find her strength and her voice to speak up and handle herself with confidence. I’m hoping we can get as many girls as possible to join in and feel strong.”

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Students, faculty, parents, and even LVUSD Superintendent of Schools Dr. Donald Zimring joined together at Yerba Buena Elementary Thursday evening for a reading celebration and birthday cake in honor of the beloved late children’s author, Theodore Geisel, a/k/a Dr. Seuss. The crowd gathered in the multi-purpose room for a charming musical number from the middle school’s cast of “Seussical the Musical.” Children were then separated into groups and then went on a round robin journey of three classrooms to listen to adults read stories by the famed writer. Afterwards, everyone met again to sing “Happy Birthday” and eat cake and run around screeching like mad.

Hopefully lots of YB students are sleeping soundly already, to be rested and alert on the actual birthday of Dr. Seuss, which is March 2.

*Yes, that IS a petition for a safer sidewalk you see in that there photo. And yes, oh yes, I will comment on this further at a later date.
