The next Sunday Salon is February 25: Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse
Sunday Salons at Columbus School for Girls began in 2010 and present an opportunity for the CSG community to gather three times over the course of each school year in order to discuss various works of history, literature, politics, international relations, religion, and science.
The books and articles that are chosen for the Sunday Salons are classic in nature or present opportunities to reflect with greater perspective on current events or ideas of interest and importance. At CSG we celebrate lifelong learning and Sunday Salons help us to continue that tradition.
Sunday, February 25th from 1:30-3:30 in the Mansion Living Room: To attend, please RSVP below. We hope you will join us!
We'll be discussing Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse.
Raising Awareness around Anxiety- Join us for a Screening of Angst- February 26 or 27
The producers of Angst, Scilla Andreen and Karin Gornick, have one goal: to start a global conversation and raise awareness around anxiety. Some of our own students have asked that we share it with you! All CSG parents are invited to a screening of the film, Monday, February 26, 2018 in the Unicorn Theater at 6:30 pm and Tuesday, February 27 at 9:00 am in the Alumnae Living Room. Through candid interviews, Angst utilizes the power of film to tell the stories of many kids and teens who discuss their anxiety and its impacts on their lives and relationships, as well as how they've found solutions and hope.

Did you know "girls' confidence declines sharply between 5th and 9th grade, and while most girls like to be in charge, self-doubt can impact their pursuit of leadership opportunities?" Last year, Ruling Our Experiences (ROX) released the results of "a first-of-its-kind, large scale national survey designed to develop a deeper understanding of the thoughts, experiences, perceptions, beliefs, behaviors and attitudes of girls throughout the United States (The Girls' Index, p.7)." More than 235 CSG students were interviewed in the survey, providing valuable insight into what girls say they need to succeed both in and out of the classroom.
Thursday, March 1, 6:30pm-7:30 pm in the Unicorn Theater, ROX Founder Lisa Hinkelman, Ph.D, will share The Girls' Index with CSG parents and also tell us how our girls responded. Head of School Jennifer Ciccarelli will then connect the dots in CSG's 2018 State of the School. Don't miss this enlightening evening where we hope to illuminate the tangible value of an all-girl education, show you the progress we've made in our Strategic Plan, and give a sneak peek of what's next for your daughter at Columbus School for Girls.
