Our Whole Lives (OWL)

We are pleased to offer this life-affirming course to our seventh grade students beginning in the Spring and continuing through the Fall of the following year. This class offers students the opportunity to identify, clarify, and discuss issues about self-esteem, media images, gender identity, relationship building, communication and caring, as well as learn important facts about the human body, sexual harassment and abuse, and sexual practices.

Please note: To register for this class, students must attend Sunday School for three months prior to class.

The 2016 OWL class is now full. If you have questions, please contact RE Director Tina Schulz at tina @ firstparish.info
