This Friday, notes will go home in the Friday folders with more information about the new urban 4-H program that is starting at Holy Redeemer.
Oct. 3rd, from 3:15 to 4:30 pm, we’ll have our first club meeting — and the club will meet every first Thursday of the month.
The group is open to students of all ages — preschool through 8th. When necessary, we’ll split into smaller groups for age-appropriate work.
Our focus this fall will be Bees, Birds, and Butterflies. We’ll focus on topics such as pollination, life cycles, food webs, and attracting bees, birds, and butterflies to our yards and gardens. We’ll have indoor and outdoor projects, work in the campus gardens, participate in service projects, and go on occasional weekend field trips (parent participation will be required).
4-H Schedule — first Thursdays starting October 3:
- 3:15 pm — Participating students will meet 4-H leaders at the school office
- 3:20 pm — Club activities will get underway
- 4:20 pm — The students and leaders will go together BTC where parents will pick up their children, or children will sign in to BTC
Signing up for Holy Redeemer 4-H involves a standard 4-H application and release form. The registration fee is $25 (scholarships available).
