NEW CLOVERBUD WORKSHOPS AND RECORD BOOK FOR 2021-22

Beginning in November, ALL Cloverbuds will have the opportunity to attend a fun activity workshop each month!  All of the activities are put together in a brand new Cloverbud Record Book where they can check off their projects completed and reflect on their progress throughout the year.  Each Cloverbud will receive their very own spiral bound record /activity book at their first project meeting.  The workshops are not mandatory, but they are a great way for Cloverbuds to dip their toes into many project areas.  Sessions will be led by Sarah Thompson.  Parents are welcome and a parent helper would be great!  All workshops will be held at JPCC at 6:30PM.  More info to come.
