On Thursday, April 15, 2015:11 girls and 10 important female women in
their lives attended the ROX Self-Defense Program after school at HW Good
Elementary School. All participants enjoyed dinner and conversation before
the self defense program began.
Self Defense techniques were taught by Dr. Lisa Hinkleman (ROX Founder)
and Ms. Lisa Mumau (School Counselor). The participants were taught safe
ways to protect their personal space when they may feel threatened or
intimidated. Many of the girls practiced various self-defense techniques
with their partners and utilized the self-defense gloves and targets.
ROX is a program that supports healthy development and empowerment for
young girls. The girls participate in a 20 week evidenced based curriculum
Do you live in the Yough School District and have a child who will be 5 years old by September 1, 2015? Enrollment packets will be available at your local elementary school March 9 - May 12 during school hours 10 am – 4 pm.
Please pick up a packet and make an appointment for the Annual Yough School District Kindergarten Registration and Screening Day: H.W. Good Elementary - May 13, 2015.
Students in Kindergarten received a developmental school counseling lesson
with Ms. Mumau about bullying. The students listened to the book, A Bug
and A Wish and learned how to stand up to a bully. Students developed
their BUG statements such as: It bugs me when you tease mean and their
WISH statements, "I wish you would stop".
Students and Ms. Mumau also discussed the characteristics of a bully
and how students can get help when they are involved with a bully.
Keep up the great work, Kindergarten students!!!!
