Yesterday I was fortunate to be invited to celebrate the Crown Jewel Club’s 2012 Emerald graduation at Trinity Elementary. The Crown Jewel Club is a nonprofit organization founded at Trinity that empowers at-risk girls with basic etiquette and social skills essential to building self-esteem and self-confidence for academic achievement and overall success in life. Yesterday these 5th graders showcased the skills they have learned with members of the community at an afternoon tea party. I was so impressed! Ben and I made floral bouquets and chamomile and mint tea bags using fresh ingredients from the school garden for each girl to take home.
