Our Whole Lives (OWL)
OWL helps participants make informed and responsible decisions about their sexual health and behavior. It equips participants with accurate, age-appropriate information in six subject areas: human development, relationships, personal skills, sexual behavior, sexual health, and society and culture. Grounded in a holistic view of sexuality, OWL not only provides facts about anatomy and human development, but also helps participants clarify their values, build interpersonal skills, and understand the spiritual, emotional, and social aspects of sexuality.
Fall 2012: OWL K-1 and OWL 4-5
2013/2014: OWL 8-9
There will be a parent informational meeting held in fall 2012. OWL classes will be held on Sunday afternoons from September through November.
A commitment to attend all classes is required to participate in any OWL program.
Coming of Age
Coming of Age is a special program where 8th and 9th grade students pair with a mentor in the Congregation and prepare for the transition from childhood to adulthood. The program emphasizes self-awareness and confidence-building; service to our Congregation and to the community; and culminates with an affirmation ceremony.
Coming of Age alternates with middle school OWL each year and will be held in 2012/2013. An informational meeting will be held on October 21, 2012, with activities and meetings occurring January-April 2013.
