What’s Happening?

 

Olympics

During February, all members can participate in the “2018 Virtual Olympics.” Our Club and members will be competing with others around the country in events, such as reading comprehension, meter dashes, and world exploration projects. Many activities will also count in the Color Wars.

 

Healthy Snacks

In addition to the free snack already provided each day, one day a week, members who are extra hungry (or picky) can take part in Healthy Snacks. Members will discover how to make healthy choices then make and eat a healthy snack. Yum!

 

Multiplication Wars

Some of our 3rd-5th grade members are signed up for Multiplication Wars where they can test their mastery of basic multiplication facts. This month, there will be a tie-in to the Olympics, so fact pages for younger members will be available.

~Keystone Club has started work on their National Project! They are working on a documentary-type video that examines how society views and treats those with disabilities and diseases, especially those that you may not be able to “see,” like autism.

Stay tuned to hear how their project is coming along, about fundraisers for the project, and how you might get involved.
