2021 April's Featured Clubs: Roots & Shoots, Chicas, S.M.I.L.E., Stamping with Kindness

Roots & Shoots

Roots & Shoots is all about helping nature, animals, our community and each other!  Mr Graham takes his passion for animals and love of our environment, to introduce his club to many amazing people and projects! 

This year the students met Jane Goodall virtually, She is a famous scientist and chimpanzee advocate. Jane read some of her favorite books to the students.They even met a few of her favorite chimpanzees. Making edible necklaces to send to the Chimpanzee Sanctuary was a lot of fun!   

Another cool project Roots & Shoots is involved in is called  Nana Cardoon. A local learning garden where the students attended many virtual tours around the garden and greenhouse. They learned about worm composting and even received their own seed kits to start growing their own gardens at home ;]

Raising Money for charities was an added bonus. Students raised $185 for the Change Maker Project while recognizing important people in their lives;]

Stamping with Kindness
In this club we create special cards to make someone's day brighter.

 We love using stamps, inks and embossers to add a bit of personality to our cards!  We create amazing art by following “ how to draw” websites.

We also create special cards on holidays for our family and loved ones;] 

Most of our cards are for thanking community helpers like our firefighters, police officers, and teachers. We have enjoyed giving cards to our bus drivers and  local retirement residents;]
