Welcome to Gurney Service Learning Club!
Today, we met with students interested in joining our service club. The Third Grade Gurney Service-Learning Club volunteers are learning how to serve others for a better community by volunteering and giving our time, friendship, talents and selves. In order to receive further information about club events, please begin by registering your child on this site: GSLC Sign Up . Once we have this information, we can communicate upcoming events with you via email.
We will be traveling to Hamlet Village on October 31st for a Halloween celebration with the residents immediately after school that day. Students will remain in their costumes and we will parade through the Atrium and the Manor as a part of our visit. Parents must be available to pick up their child at 4:25 that day at the Hamlet Atrium. We do need to limit this visit to 25 students, but there will be many other opportunities to visit Hamlet throughout the year!! If your child would like to participate in this event, please log onto: Hamlet Halloween and click on Hamlet Halloween.
Throughout the year, we will make multiple visits to both Hamlet and South Franklin Circle through May. These visits are an amazing opportunity for your child to interact with the residents and create crafts, read or play games together. Each month is a different activity, and the residents LOVE to be with the kids! We do have to limit the number of students for each trip, but there are 15 trips spread throughout the year, so feel free to sign your child up for multiple trips. Here is the link for trips for this year: Hamlet/South Franklin Circle Visits and click on each venue to register your child for trips this year.
Another project is a USO Care Package Collection drive which will begin November 6th and run through November 17th. We would like the students to be involved in supporting our troops by collecting and organizing items that will be sent to them via the USO. To begin the project, we’d like to have an organizational meeting on November 2nd right after school until 4:25 in Mrs. Halagan’s Room. At this gathering, we will make posters and flyers to distribute to the school which will inform others about this drive. If your child would like to participate, please sign up here: USO Poster Making .
