Recently, I spent two hours after school with the Girls for Change team at Shirakawa Elementary School in San Jose. This team of six graders schooled me in Girl Power + activism. Their project is to have a healthy snack shack day at school and prove to their classmates that healthy food tastes great and will keep your mind and body alert. Today, they made a list of everything they should get permission for; can we post posters, make a morning announcement, wear team t-shirts instead of the school uniform that day etc., AND presented their requests to the principal who dropped in. As if that weren’t enough, they proceeded to create a Gantt chart of the tasks and due dates with post-its. Amazing. They reminded me that I must not underestimate what kids are capable of. It’s so much more than we give them credit for.
