News from the Errickson Students Care Club

Dear Errickson Families,

I'm excited to announce that we're starting a new service learning club at Errickson School - the Students Care Club. This is an after school program for students in grades 3, 4 and 5. Students who become members of this club will have the opportunity to enhance their leadership skills and their connection with the community. Some activities include researching social issues, voting for some good causes to help, brainstorming ways to give back to the community, setting goals, planning activities to achieve set goals, and reflection on the service provided.

This club will be meeting after school on Thursdays starting November 16th. Pick up time will be at 4:15 pm.

The MWES Students Care Club is scheduled to meet on the following dates:

November - 11/16, 11/30

December - 12/7, 12/14, 12/21

January - 1/4, 1/18, 1/25

February - 2/1, 2/8, 2/15, 2/22

March - 3/1, 3/8, 3/15, 3/22

In order to be selected for this club, parents and students need to fill out, sign, and return this application by Wednesday, November 8th. (pages 2 & 3 only).

Prospective club members are encouraged to write a couple of paragraphs stating why he/she should be selected for the Students Care Club. You may explain ways in which you would be a good addition to this club. Then, illustrate a picture that supports your statement (s) or draw a sign that encourages others to give back to the community.

I'm looking forward to start this program with our kind and caring Errickson family and make it a successful one.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Fernández

Students Care Club Leader
