To honor Sept. 22 as the International Day of the Girl, a middle school class at New Canaan Country School participated in LitWorld's Stand Up for Girls acrostic activity and the kids came up with words and phrases.

The class made a poster of their ideas to hang in its classroom.

At noon, they were at field hockey practice, so they took a few minutes to talk about the day and the importance of educating girls worldwide and then stood up at noon.

This conversation will continue throughout the year and beyond.
