REMINDER: Chain Links Club and Gamester Schedule

Chain Links Meetings and Gamester Schedule

This year, Chain Links Club meetings are going to focus on the climate in our school, working to promote acceptance, respect, kindness and compassion. In the spring, we’ll focus on spreading kindness overseas to our troops.

Gamester will be once a month this year in an attempt to get more kids involved on a regular basis, especially our 6th graders who don’t have as many extra-curricular opportunities. If you have any board games you’d like to donate to the organization, please let me know.
