Girls on the Rise

A new program is on the rise at St. Andrew’s School.  The Girls on the Rise, an after-school literacy program run by volunteer Marcia Brown.  The program is for girls between the ages of 9 – 12.  Eight girls begin at 3:30 by preparing and working together to make a light snack.  They then assemble on Mondays to write in their journals and listen to a guest speaker read the story of an American Girl Doll.  Each of the popular line’s 11 dolls comes with a book series that chronicles the life of each, delving into their different cultural backgrounds and the historical eras from which they hail.  At the end of the program girls get to keep their doll.
