Girls Empowerment Network offers class for 5th-6th grade girls and parents

Fifth and sixth grade girls at Brenham Middle School heard from Brenham High School graduate Chelsea Dean-Martinez, Program Coordinator for the Girls Empowerment Network. The assembly was offered in conjunction with BMS Incentive Day, and included conversations and activities surrounding values, goal setting, and how to treat each other with kindness.

The Girls Empowerment Network is offering a follow-up session for 5th and 6th grade girls and their parents through Brenham Community Education. The follow-up sessions will be on Friday, December 1 from 5:30-7:00 p.m. at Brenham Middle School.

Two concurrent sessions will be offered, one for girls and another for parents. Girls will use their creativity to craft positive affirmation signs, play games to help talk about values, and more! Parents will join in a discussion on how girls are using the internet, the challenges and benefits of social media, and resources parents can use to combat challenges. Parents and children may register together or attend individually. Registration information can be found at
