World in a Box Day

There’s a great opportunity at the Hardesty Library on August 6th from 11AM to 3PM to get some volunteering in before the school year starts.  Participating in World in a Box Day is a great way to help out in spreading the knowledge of various cultures right here in our own community.  There will be small booths set up for various countries along with representatives to speak about them.  Volunteers will have various jobs such as storytelling or checking people in.  Additionally, volunteers will be needed for set up and teardown as well.  If you are interested in helping out at this event please contact riyakaul00@gmail.com for further information.

Scholarship and cowl info for seniors!

This year, we are happy to announce that we have 3 scholarships available to seniors who are in good standing (you do not have to be an officer or board member to apply). We have 1 $1000 and 2 $500 scholarships available. Applications are in Mrs. Langley’s room and are due on May 6th by 3pm-no exceptions.

Seniors in good standing are also encouraged to visit Mrs. Langely and get their graduation cowls. Cowls are loaned out, but may be purchased for $15. If you are unsure about whether or not you’re in good standing, please visit Mrs. Langley as she has the current senior roster posted. If there are any problems, please email me (vicepresident@jenkskeyclub.org) or talk with Mrs. Langley ASAP so we can fix it.

 

Finally, a big shout out to the Jenks Kiwanis for helping fund some of our scholarships. If you would like to come support our Kiwanians and new officers, be sure to swing by the Jenks Methodist Church from 7:30-10 am in your Key Club shirt for a pancake breakfast ($5 donation recommended). If you need more points for April, you can still help out at the Plant and Herb Festival this week from 8-4, or the  Ford Test Drive at the HS parking lot. Our new Lt. Governor, Brandon Burnett, is also hosting his first Presidential Council Meeting (PCM) at Meritt’s Bakery from 4-5. Attendance is not mandatory, but if you’re interested in learning more about what goes on in the Texas-Oklahoma (TO) district and Key Club International, feel free to drop by.

March Roster and Info for Seniors!

Hey everyone, the roster has been updated-sorry for the delay!

Roster

 

Anyways, for seniors, if you want a Key Club cowl at graduation, make sure you have the required number of points! Counting April hours (which will be added sometime early May), you’ll need to have 96 points to be in good standing. If you need more points, we have plenty of opportunities for you to get hours this weekend.

 

The Jenks Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast will be held at the Jenks Methodist Church, 8-10 am. Wear your T-shirt (1 point) and eat pancakes (please bring a donation, 2 points) to support our officers and K-family!
Jenks Herb and Plant Festival is 8-4, and we need people to man the “shop and drop” table. The Jenks Foundation will also be hosting test drives at the middle school and they need a few people to help with paper work. For every test drive, our school gets $20, so that’s another way you can help build our school.

Kudos to those that got the above reference (:

Anyways, for more information, or to sign up, please email Carolyn at specialprojects@jenkskeyclub.org.

 

I’ll post more information about scholarships once Mrs. Langley has scholarship applications available. Also, don’t forget to go to your board member interview this week if you have one!

Last, but not least, don’t miss our last general meeting on May 9th! JMASC-7:15-2:45 like usual.

 

February Hours

Hello everyone, I hope you’ve enjoyed Spring Break (and the winter temperatures). Here is the new Monthly Roster
with the updated hours. However, we have run into a little snag for February hours.

Every month, when the monthly report is compiled by the secretaries, we need to provide proof-sign in sheets-for projects with over 100 hours. These sign in sheets are sent to the district secretary along with our report. Unfortunately, for the month of February, the sign in sheets for the K2K and Faith Based projects were sent in before copies could be made, which means that I cannot credit hours for people who volunteered at those projects in the month of February.

If you did volunteer at any K2K project, or did any Faith Based hours during the month of February, please email me with the dates and number of hours you volunteered there. If you have any previous email correspondence (for example, if you emailed the Abbey Dyke your Faith Based hours), please forward those emails as well. My email address is VicePresident@jenkskeyclub.org

I apologize for any inconvenience this causes, but also thank everyone for their understanding.

Officer Elections Tomorrow

Key Club officer elections are tomorrow!

Come by the third floor of the JMASC at 7:15 or 2:45 to hear our candidates and vote for next years officers.

 

If any candidates have any questions, please email me or Ashley at vicepresident@jenkskeyclub.org or president@jenkskeyclub.org respectively.

January Roster

I have finished updating the roster with January’s hours, so please remember to check if you’re in good standing. Also, please make sure that your handwriting is legible and you are signing your first and last name on the sign in sheets.

Monthly Roster

Now for a few announcements:

We will have a general meeting this Thursday, Feb. 14th on the third floor of the JMASC, before/after school at 7:15 and 2:45.

Only members in good standing may run for officer and board positions, so if you believe that there is a mistake, please contact me at vicepresident@jenkskeyclub.org. If you are planning to run for an officer position, remember that the deadline to sign up for officer elections is Friday, Feb. 15th. You can turn in applications or sign up in Mrs. Langley’s room, 2-116.

The March Against Hunger Early Bird deadline is this Friday as well, sign up packets are in Mrs. Langley’s room. The regular deadline is March 7th.

Finally, come support our Lt. Governor candidate, Brandon Burnett, this Saturday. There will be a Regional meeting in the JMASC at 10 am, and Brandon will be running for Lt. Governor of our division (25W). There will also be a few more Lt. Governors from different divisions, as well as the Regional Advisor, so this will be a great opportunity to meet students from other school districts and divisions.

Fall Roster Update

I’ve finished updating the Key Club roster with December hours, so all hours should be up to date now. If you find any errors with your points, please feel free to contact me at vicepresident@jenkskeyclub.org.

Fall Semester Roster

 

Also a few more reminders:

  • Next general meeting will be  Thursday, February 14thon the third floor of the JMASC, 7:15/2:45 as usual. Remember to wear your shirt for an extra point!
  • Officer elections will be held February 21st. You must sign up with Mrs. Langley by February 15th if you are interested in running. Remember, you must be in good standing to run for an officer position, and all new officers are required to attend District Convention April 4-7.
  • March Against Hunger is March 8-9 in the PEG.  We’re planning on a night full of fun, with activities like a character scavenger hunt, frozen t-shirt and duct tape contests, and a variety of food from local restaurants. A giant Nerf/water gun battle is also in the works, but not definite yet. Grab your friends and a packet from Mrs. Langley to make a team. The cost is $75 by February 15th, or $100 by March 7th. All proceeds will go towards the Jenks Community Food Bank.

 

 

Important Key Club News!

Hello everyone, I’m glad to see that we’ve all survived our first day back after Winter Break. I’ve got a ton of information for about the next few weeks for Key Club, so bring out your calendar (or smartphone) and get ready to add some dates.

  • Our next general meeting will be this Thursday, January 11, in the STUDENT UNION. We will still meet at the normal times though (7:15 a.m. and 2:45 p.m.).
  • The February meeting will be held Thursday, February 14, on the third floor of the JMASC. 
  • Officer elections will be held FEBRUARY 21. Interested in running for an officer position? Officer applications will be released soon, so make sure you keep an eye out if you’re interested. The deadline for officer applications will be February 15th.
    You’ll  need to be in good standing (see below) to run for any leadership position in Key Club. All elected officers will be expected to help with March Against Hunger, March 8-9 in the PEG, and attend District Convention (DCON)  which is April 4-7 in Dallas, TX, so make sure you will be able to attend both events if you decide to run for office.
  • March Against Hunger will be held March 8-9 in the PEG. Our theme this year will be super heroes. Registration packets will be available beginning January 16th, so get your friends together and get ready for a night of world-saving, crime-fighting, super-powered fun.

If you’ve attended any of our Key Club meetings, you’ve heard us talk about earning 12 points a month to be in good standing with Key Club. Now you can check to see if you are in good standing, just download the Key Club 2012 Roster.

  • How to be in good standing:
    Members are required to have an average of at least 12 points per month in order to be in good standing. Points can be earned for attending meetings (1 point), wearing a Key Club T-shirt to meetings (1 point), participating in service projects (2 points per hour), and through donations (maximum of 2 points per month). Ideally, members should attend the monthly meeting while wearing their Key Club T-shirt and have 5 service hours for each month.
    We realize that students may be busy and have other commitments, which is why good standing is an average of all the months. For example, a student who is extremely busy one month and only earns 8 points may make up the extra points by doing more service and earning 16 points for the next month.
  • Benefits of being in good standing:
    Members who are in good standing are eligible to run for leadership positions in Key Club, including officer, board, and Lt. Governor. They are also eligible to attend the Key Club District Convention (DCON) in April. More information about DCON will be available during March.
    Seniors who are in good standing during their senior year may also earn a cowl to wear at graduation. However, they must have earned at least 20 points during each semester (August-December), and have a total of 85 points by April 1st.
  • How to read the roster:
    Members who are in good standing are recognized for their efforts and are placed at the top of the roster. Members who are not in good standing will only have their ID number listed.
    Columns E, F, G, and H list the number of points for each member during the months of August, September, October, and November respectively (December hours will be added as soon as possible). A green cell for columns E-H shows that the member was in good standing  for that month. A yellow cell for columns E-H means that the member did service or earned donation points during that month, along with meeting attendance. A red cell for columns E-H means that the member had not done service, received any donation points, and may or may not have attended meetings. To make up for a tabulating error, all members were given points for attending the meeting and wearing their T-shirt (2 points total) for certain months.
    The final column, I, displays the total number of points a member has earned. Like the other columns, green cells indicate that the member was in good standing for the first four months. August hours were not required because members did not enroll until the end of August or early September, so members only needed points for September-November (36 points total). However, if members completed any service during the summer and documented it with the secretaries, their points were recorded and added to the column I.  Yellow cells indicate that the member had more than 12 points, but not enough to be in good standing. Red cells indicate that less than 12 points have been earned during the months of August-November.

Not in good standing? Don’t worry! Like I mentioned before, you can make up points by doing extra service during other months.

If you believe that there has been a mistake with your points or you do not see your name/ID on the list, please contact the me at vicepresident@jenkskeyclub.org

General Meeting on Thursday

Just a reminder that there will be a Key Club general meeting this Thursday in the JMASC at 7:15/2:45 like usual. We will meet on the third floor, and make sure you sign in to get credit for attending. Remember, you can wear your Key Club t-shirt for an extra point.

We’ll discuss March Against Hunger, our annual lock-in benefiting a non-profit organization (the Jenks Community Food Bank). Get your friends together and form a team to participate in fun activities all night long, win  awesome prizes, and raise money for the food bank! Key Club will also be offering positions for general members to get involved with planning the event, which is a great leadership position and a preview of part of the duties of a board member or officer, so keep your eyes out.

Highlights from last year were:
Over $17,000 raised for the Jenks Community Food Bank!
An ipad 2, 3 ipod Shuffles, and multiple itunes gift cards as prizes
Food from local restaurants such as Gaetanos, Chick-fil-A, and Buffalo Wild Wings
A character scavenger hunt
