Our Whole Lives (OWL) 2015-2016

Our Whole Lives is a comprehensive sexuality education program for all ages developed in a partnership between the United Church of Christ and the Unitarian Universalists.  It provides not only facts about anatomy and human development, but helps participants to clarify their values, build interpersonal skills, and understand the social, emotional, and spiritual aspects of sexuality.

During the 2015-16 school year, Plymouth will be offering Our Whole Lives (OWL) classes for FOUR age groups!

1)      Kindergarten-first grade – Six sessions after worship during Spring 2016 – taught by Sandy Moliere and Cher Jackson

Middle and High school families, please  watch for more information this summer.   OWL classes are open to Plymouth families, and if space permits, to families in our community as well.  Parents are required to attend a parent session before each course begins.  The parent meeting for the 7-9 and 10-12 classes will be following worship on Sunday, August 9.  If you know of families interested in OWL classes, please speak to any of our OWL leaders listed above.
