Girls Leadership Workshops at Marshall School

Box Tops for Education logo

Do you have a girl Kindergartener to Third Grader? If so, are you interested to participate in a Girls Leadership Workshop? This is geared for girls and their grown up to teach social emotional intelligence, explore and communicate feelings and teach how to make healthy relationship choices. For those that expressed interest in the Girls Leadership Workshops at Marshall, the registration links are now live.


When: Thursdays, March 8, 15, 22 & 29

K/1st Graders | 6:30 to 7:30 pm | Marshall School Library

To register for the Marshall School K/1 workshop, click here.


2nd/3rd Graders | 6:30 to 8:00 pm | Marshall School Cafetorium

To register for the Marshall School 2/3 workshop, click here.


If you either get closed out of the 2/3 workshop or if a Saturday time would be better for you, here is a link to a 2/3 workshop at Morrow Memorial Church in Maplewood.

Scholarships are available. As with all school and PTA functions, no family will be denied participation because of financial responsibility. Please contact Mrs. Glander if you need financial assistance. All requests will be handled confidentially.


We are aware that some of you have girls in both grade levels and cannot participate in both workshops at the same time. Our hope is that the workshops are so successful that we will offer more later in the spring. Thus, while you may have to wait to participate with your other girl, it will likely happen.




It’s never too early to start to learn and practice social- emotional intelligence skills. Girls and grown-ups will bond and explore healthy relationships through exciting interactive games and engaging stories. They will build the foundation of a common language to advocate for themselves and understand true friendship behaviors.


Program Summary: Four 60 minute sessions

Week One: Friendship Toolbox
Week Two: Sharing Feelings & Body Language
Week Three: Mistakes, We All Make ‘Em
Week Four: Courageous Relationships


Cost: $195.00/pair 




Like any pursuit – soccer, dance, or writing poetry – developing social-emotional intelligence and learning authentic self-expression takes practice. Through fun and interactive games and discussions parents and daughters will learn and practice how to explore and share feelings, communicate authentically, and make healthy relationship choices.


Program Summary: (Four 90 minute sessions)

Week One: Standing Up For Yourself
Week Two: Sharing Feelings
Week Three: Double Sorry
Week Four: Choices For Friend Trouble


Cost: $225/pair


Interested? Please fill out this online survey by Friday, February 2, 2018 so that we can assess interest and open a program for registration as quickly as possible. When we have 10 pairs for the K/1 and 12 pairs for the 2/3, programs will open for registration and you will be notified immediately so that you can register before the program is open to the general public. Scholarships are available.
