As a new school year begins, classes, sports teams, and clubs begin as well. These clubs are usually the brainchildren of you, the students, and one of our newest clubs is no exception. The Jewish Community Club focuses on community service and other fun projects. Kyle Pave, the founder of the club, said, “I created it to help people in need...I was definitely correct in thinking that this would be a rewarding experience. A special thanks to the Shemtovs and Mr. Greenockle for making this happen.”
The Jewish Community Club looks to support people through different activities such as various food projects, 5k runs for cancer, fundraisers, and other projects. They are also partnering with Friendship Circle, an organization that works with special needs kids.
The club will also begin to offer LINCS credits soon. Students who are interested in joining different national honor societies are required to have a certain number of LINCS hours. Regardless of your grade level, it is a great idea to earn more hours. However, you shouldn’t join this club simply for service credit; this club is a worthwhile experience and will be productive when helping others.
You can find meeting dates via the morning announcements and/or flyers around the building. It is important to note that you do not have to be Jewish to join this club; you only need a desire to help others and an interest in working with your peers to make that happen. Students should take advantage of this rewarding experience and join the Jewish Community Club this upcoming school year.
