Announcing OWL for Kindergarteners and First Graders
Register by Sunday, January 15; sessions begin Sunday, January 22
We are delighted to announce that UUC Family Ministry will be offering Our Whole Lives (OWL) for children in Kindergarten and 1st Grade this winter! Many of you are familiar with our OWL class for 8th and 9th Graders—this curriculum is part of the same series. Facilitated by Katie Renschler, Claire Appelmans, and Melissa Hensley, this eight-workshop curriculum helps children begin the lifelong process of acquiring information and forming attitudes and values about identity, relationships, safety, and health.
OWL: K–1 will be on Sundays, from 1:00–2:00 p.m. in the Bridges Classroom, beginning on January 22 and ending on March 26. The first session will be a parent/child orientation, from 1:00 – 3:30 pm. (No class on February 19.) A concurrent parent group will be offered as an opportunity for parents to connect with one another and reflect on the same topics their children will be exploring. Childcare will be available for siblings.

Our Whole Lives is a positive, comprehensive, and age-appropriate educational program that promotes sexual health and is informed by the guidelines of the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS). The curriculum is based on four primary goals: to provide accurate, developmentally appropriate information; to increase self-esteem and understand relationships with and responsibilities toward others; to develop interpersonal skills including communication, decision making, and problem solving; and to teach responsibility for personal health and safety.
