Dear Parents and
As some of you
may know, last year we introduced the Hance Family Foundation’s
Beautiful Me Project to our building.
The program received great reviews and the girls loved it!
Now, we are happy to announce that the program will be offered to
our junior girls on Thursday, February 16th!
The program will take place in the gymnasium and run
approximately periods two through four.
Our Island Trees teachers have been trained and they are very
excited to be implementing this wonderful program!
Also, the PTA has graciously offered to provide breakfast for the
girls during this time. It
definitely will be a day to remember!
this program, our wish is to enhance your daughter’s
self-esteem, increase positive body awareness, improve her problem
solving skills, and to help her build healthy friendship skills.
lessons are designed to teach girls of all ages how to think positively
and with assurance about their bodies, their skills, and their
relationships with others.
Beautiful Me program is being
taught across New York City and the greater metro area, New Jersey,
Chicago and Florida. This
program has been accepted into the curriculum of several Nassau County
schools, the teaching program at Molloy College, Fordham University’s
Department of Social Work, St. John’s
University, and Cohen’s
Medical Center. For more
information, please see
or feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
It is important to note that each girl needs consent to participate in
the program! Please use the link below to complete the online consent
We’re looking forward to another
successful program here at Island Trees!
