Eden Hall Upper Elementary to Serve as Site for Heart & Sole Program
    Due to the successful spring 2017 season of Heart & Sole, we will be hosting the program again this fall for students interested in grades 6 and 7.  Check back to the website for additional information in early September!  Below is information regarding the program.  Additional information will be provided in the coming weeks!
    Magee-Women’ Hospital of UPMC is sponsoring a new program called Heart & Sole. The program is intended for girls in grades 6 and 7. Heart & Sole creates a structured space for girls to learn about themselves, exercising empathy, strengthening positive relationships, and developing connections with others as they move through adolescence and beyond. The Heart & Sole program features a ten week curriculum that addresses the whole girl including body, brain, heart, spirit, and social connection while building other skills such as a decision making, asking for and helping others, as well as team building. This program is accessible to all girls regardless of athletic ability or fitness level. The curriculum integrates strength and conditioning to prepare girls for the season culminating 5K.
    Students in 6th grade at EHUE and 7th graders at Pine Richland Middle School are encouraged to sign up to make connections with each other and build new relationships. Practices will be held on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s from 3:15 to 4:45. Below are some critical dates for signing your daughter up. Please register at http://gotrmagee.org/register/.
