The Charleston County School District Office of Community Outreach will host the second annual Girls Summit on March 16 at Stall High School in North Charleston.

The Girls Summit, to be held 9 a.m.-3 p.m., is for parents and their daughters.

The event is free and open to families in the Charleston County School District and surrounding areas.

The summit will address issues affecting young women in the 21st century and will include a panel of community leaders and workshops for both English-speaking and Spanish-speaking parents that address “Raising Successful Daughters in the 21st Century.”

The young women, in grades 1-12, will attend their own workshops addressing self-esteem and decision-making.

They will end the day with an etiquette session by Cynthia Grosso of the Charleston School of Protocol and Etiquette, an anti-bullying workshop by Pro-Parents and an interactive improvisational activity with the Fighting Gnomes of the Charleston County School of the Arts.

Lunch and limited child care will be provided for those who pre-register. For information, call 937-6462, email parentuniversity@charleston.k12.sc.us or visit www.ccsdschools.com and click on the Parent University link.
