K-Kids is an international student-led organization that provides students in grade 3-5 with opportunities to perform service, build character, and develop leadership. Students who participate in K-Kids are encouraged to show loyalty to their school, community, and nation. The core values of K-Kids are Character Building, Leadership, Inclusiveness and Caring. In years past, we have helped the Key Club clean up Friendship Gardens, sang Christmas carols for the elderly at Sugar Grove, raised money for Riley Hospital for Kids, helped collect peanut butter for Gleaner’s, and volunteered at Central’s restaurant nights.
Any child in grades 3-5 is able to participate in this after school program, which meets one day a week. Each week students work on stretching, breathing, eating healthy, and running during our time together. On the designated day, students will meet in the cafeteria right after school to eat a healthy snack and work on their homework under adult supervision. After about 20 minutes, supervisors and students begin activities which last about an hour.
