K-Kids Club

Page not updated for 2017-18 school year

Program Description:

K-Kids is the Service component of the Kiwanis Kids program.  K-Kids clubs provide Elementary school students with their first opportunity to learn about organizing projects that help others.  Members work together in service to the school and the community.  Members develop basic leadership skills and strong moral character.  There are 4 student elected positions – President, Vice President, Secretary, and Sergeant of Arms.  There is also a Board of Directors, which is made up of one member from each grade level.  The students will learn about this process, how to lead and run meetings, how to set agendas and goals, and how to serve and support our community.  This club is lead by 2nd grade teacher Barbara Tivnan, whose stipend is funded by PTA and supported by 2 parent advisors.  This club was chartered in Spring of 2015 and is supported by the local Mercer Island Kiwanis Club.  James Stipes, a retired Mercer Island School Teacher, is the Kiwanis liaison.
