Week of September 11th, 2015 Due: Monday September 14, 2015
-Booster Meeting: The next one is 9/14!
Finding Kind: On September 11, 2015 our 7th and 8th grade girls will have an opportunity to watch a documentary calling “Finding Kind” (preview here: https://findingkind.indieflix.com/home/) by the creators of the Kind Campaign. (https://www.kindcampaign.com/)
In Finding Kind, filmmakers Lauren Parsekian and Molly Thompson, who met while in school at Pepperdine University, set out in a cross country journey of discovery and education. Interviewing women and girls along the way about their lives and experiences, Parsekian and Thompson find, among all of the unique personal stories, some universal truths about growing up as girls. Our school counselors will be with the girls as they watch this documentary. Due to the nature of the documentary, the film does have some sensitive references and language. Should you have any questions about the film or would like to opt out, please contact your student’s counselor.
Taniia Edwards, Students with last name A-L tedwards@natomas.k12.ca.us or Allyson Parr, Students with last name M – Z aparr@natomas.k12.ca.us
