Grand Ridge Elementary PTSA is happy to offer a K-Kids Club
open to 4th & 5th graders for the 2019-2020 school year!

K-Kids is a service based organization, affiliated with the Kiwanis Club. Its vision is to develop competent, capable, caring leaders through the vehicle of service.

Our Grand Ridge K-Kids Club will be doing monthly service projects with expectations that parents/family participate. The Club is open to 4th & 5th graders and there are 15 spots for each grade. Registration through this link is required by Sunday, October 6, 2019. If more kids sign up than there is space there will be a lottery on October 7th and all registered will be notified. 

Pledge: As a K-Kid, I promise to serve my neighborhood and my school. I will show respect toward my environment and I will try to make the world a better place in which to live.
 
Club Details
 
1.  MEETING TIME & ATTENDANCE: Monthly meetings on the second Wednesday of each month after school from 1:20-2:20pm in Portable 8 :  Oct 9th, Nov 13th, Dec 11th, Jan 15th (please note this is the 3rd Wed of the month), Feb 12th, March 11th, April 8th, May 13th, and June 10th. Kids are expected to attend all Wednesday monthly meetings listed (unless ill). We will be using these meeting to plan the monthly service project. If you will be out of town for an extended period of time or during meetings/events, please take that into consideration. 

2.  WEEKEND/EVENT ATTENDANCE: Kids are expected to attend weekend  or weeknight service project events. Dates to be determined. While we understand children have other obligations, K-Kids is also a commitment and must be a priority for your child. Attendance at 6 or more monthly meeting and 6 or more weekend/weeknight events is REQUIRED.

3.  DISCIPLINE: Good character and respecting leaders are two important tenets of K-Kids. We do not expect to have discipline issues during K-Kids meetings/events. However, if your child views K-Kids as a play date or day care service, this is not the club for them! Children who misbehave will be asked to leave the meeting/event and will not be permitted to attend any future events/meetings. Please speak to your child about this expectation before our first meeting.

4.  PARENTS ARE INVOLVED: Parents, we cannot do K-Kids without your assistance.  Therefore, YOU are required to sign up to attend at least one service project and/or help in a monthly meeting. I will need each parent to drive their student to and from our service projects. I will also need at least 1 parent to help in each monthly meeting. I know parents are very busy which is why we will offer a variety of times to assist. I will send out a sign up sheet for you to sign up for a time slot. Ultimately, the goal is to serve and volunteer to make a difference in the community. This is just a starting point and the hope is that we can have more families be involved in the community and volunteering. You are more than welcome to bring other siblings as long as you volunteer and watch them.
