Safe Dates

Safe Dates is a curriculum addressing dating violence and talking to children about today's technology and the difference between a healthy/non-healthy relationship.  Trish Hines will be going to Kinsley Jr.-Sr. High School in February and March with this curriculum.  Safe Dates will start with keynote speakers Curt and Cristie Brunghardt who are FHSU professors and run a non-profit organization, "Jana's Campaign" against domestic violence.


Book in a Bag

Trisha Hines teaches monthly Book-In-a-Bag lessons in Kinsley-Offerle and Lewis pre-school and kindergarten classes.  These lessons encourage an interest in healthy living and reading within the family.  Children learn about nutrition by  having age-appropriate books with food-related themes read to them, then participating in hands-on food preparation.
