The Celebration Foundation WINGS (Women’s Initiative Nurturing Girls’ Strength) program had our second Power Lunch of the school year on Halloween. Power Lunches are held monthly during the school year for Celebration K-8 middle schoolers. The goal of the Power Lunches is to discuss crucial topics with students that aren’t part of their regular school curriculum such as confidence and leadership skills.

This Power Lunch, we discussed costumes as they relate to our confidence, and whether or not costumes make us more confident. We invited students to dress up either as an influential woman in history or something that flies/has wings. Students got to listen to counselors and their peers talk about the influential women in history that they dressed up as, and then play women’s history trivia. Students had a great time exploring confidence and learning more about women’s history! A special thank you to this Power Lunch’s sponsors, Celebration Pediatrics and Celebration OBGYN for helping make this programming possible!

Celebration Foundation’s WINGS program was created to explore ways in which girls and women can reach their highest potential. Goal setting, leadership qualities, and positive self-image are some of the topics explored through Power Lunches, done in partnership with Celebration K-8 School, and regional events.
