Girls Embracing their Minds and Self-worth

The “RCES GEMS” is a girl’s social club aimed at helping girls realize that they are intelligent, proud, and beautiful individuals who are capable of doing and becoming whatever they put their minds to. 

Motto: “If you don’t make it the first time, don’t give up. Keep fighting…Keep going…and You will get there!” 

The “GEMS” will meet once a week for an hour from 2:30pm-3:30pm pm every Thursday in the Auxiliary Computer Lab room on the Red Hall. During this time at least once or twice a month,  an outstanding woman will share with the girls their experiences and insight to help them prepare and face future endeavors with grace, charm, and determination. 

Events: In addition to guest speakers, the “GEMS” will engage in school and community projects, crafts, etiquette classes, and other activities.  Also, a number of trips will be planned to different performances and cultural events. 

Who Can Join: Only girls in 4th, 5th, and 6th grades are eligible to apply.  If you are interested, please fill out and return the application to: Mrs. Portia L. Jones-Jennings.
