Beautiful Me Program Continues in East Rockaway Photo
Seventh- and eighth-grade students at East Rockaway Junior-Senior High School participated in the Hance Family Foundation’s Beautiful Me program.

Facilitated by school social worker, Ms. Amy Weissman, the girls had an opportunity to honor the lives of three beautiful sisters, Emma, Allyson and Katie Hance by participating in this self-esteem program that teaches students to understand who they are, to appreciate their own skills and qualities, and to understand that there is gratification in helping others. The students discussed alternate views of beauty, distorted views of beauty from the media and learned how to respect themselves and develop healthy relationships. They also engaged in activities that focused on self-esteem, values, problem-solving and positive motivation.
