On Friday, October 20, 2017, SAS Middle School held their annual Girls Empowerment Night at the middle school from 6pm-midnight. The night began with pizza and snacks for dinner and then proceeded with two guest speakers on how to be a strong, confident, and empowered woman. The guest speakers were Pearl Petty, advocate at McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Center, and Heather Douglas, caseworker with Onondaga County and one of our parents. Following the presentations, students participated at different stations throughout the night. Stations included making kindness rocks, creating t-shirts/pillowcases, painting nails, doing each other's makeup, watching movies and eating popcorn, singing and dancing, a photo booth, and games.
