Girls on the Run

CTTCS is part of a networked “Girls on the Run” program that includes over 200 councils across the United States and Canada. The program is offered to girls from ages 8 to 13.  It is a transformational program teaching life skills through dynamic conversation-based lessons and creative running games. The mission of the program is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident while having fun. The “Girls on the Run” website puts it this way “Learn to be the boss of your brain….Take charge and define your future….Define your future on your terms… Think of it as Can University – a place where girls learn that they can… no limits… no restraints… only opportunities to be remarkable.

Diversity Club

The purpose of Diversity Club is to celebrate all forms of diversity. We believe that it doesn’t matter who you are or what you believe in, you are still entitled to live a great life without being discriminated against, stereotyped, or judged. The goal of this club is to move people to understand and accept everyone for who they are.

 This club is dedicated to universal respect including, but not limited to, minorities such as those of race, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, mental or physical handicap, nationality, appearance, and financial status. We welcome all who are willing to make a statement for what they believe.

 The Diversity Club mission supports students in understanding each other and moving beyond simple tolerance to embracing and celebrating the diversity contained within each of us.   It provides an environment of exploration of differences in a safe, positive, and nurturing atmosphere.

The Diversity Club is open to students in grades 7 and 8.
