Happy Summer to EWMS Teen Korps families!
EWMS Teen Korps chapter leaders will not be organizing any “official” chapter service events this summer, but teen leader Patrick Gleason and his mom, co-chapter leader Pam Gleason, have registered for 5 service events during July and August and welcome any other EWMS Teen Korps members to join them. Please click here for a list of summer service events the Gleasons are currently registered for or click here for the Kids Korps project calendar, where you can sign up for these events and all other general Kids Korps service activities. Remember, if you sign up directly for a project through the Kids Korps online calendar, there is no need to enter your service hours manually, as they will be accounted for via the Kids Korps online system after you register and participate.
You still have time to earn an annual service award as your service hours accrue through September 1st. Many of you are close to earning the 50 hours needed to qualify for a Presidential Service award bronze level, and some of you have even gone over the 50 hours and are heading towards the silver and gold levels. Please click here for the “Hours Login” page for more details and to enter past service hours for chapter projects and meetings. All chapter service event details since February are listed here under “Chapter Projects”, (in case you need to jog your memory) and past chapter meetings are listed here in our calendar.
We’ll be back in touch sometime towards the end of summer to update you on EWMS Teen Korps plans for next school year. In the meantime, please feel free to contact us through this link if you need any information this summer, or if you’re an incoming EWMS 7th grader and are thinking about joining EWMS Teen Korps for the 2012-2013 school year!
Best of luck to all our 2012 8th grade members as you move on to high school! We’ll miss you next school year and wish you all the best.
THANKS AGAIN to all members and families for your commitment to service this year! It’s been a real pleasure getting to know you, and we look forward to seeing you next school year. Have a great summer.
Susan Miller, EWMS Teen Korps chapter leader,
on behalf of co-chapter leaders Mrs. Logan, Mrs. Gleason and Mrs. Afsahi
