Big Spring School District’s eighth annual Girls’ Night Out last Saturday in Newville drew 68 fourth- and fifth-grade girls to the event promoting self-esteem.
Volunteers led the girls through several stations at Oak Flat Elementary School, where they created boards celebrating their uniqueness, special talents and interests.
The girls also took part in a selfie decorating challenge with positive compliments, a discussion about the media and its effect on self-esteem, and also a 40-minute kickboxing class led by fitness instructor Ami Preston from Momentum Fitness.
“Girls’ Night Out has become a true passion of mine over the past eight years,” said Danielle Bingaman, elementary school counselor at the district. “I’m so blessed to have the opportunity to help young girls celebrate themselves for who they are and the young women they are becoming. I’m honored to have the support from the Bulldog Foundation who has funded the program, school district staff, administrators and parents.”
Students wore T-shirts with a design from Leah Helmick, a fourth-grader at Mount Rock Elementary School.
