I sponsor Swag Guild (Book and Writing Club) at Hillcrest High School. I’m hoping to broaden the activities that I have available to these amazing students during our meetings. There are five games that I would like to get that promote literacy: Looney Labs Mad Libs the Game, Hedbanz, Tall Tales Story Telling Board Game, Apples to Apples, and Scrabble.
These students have been asking for t-shirts since we formed our club almost a year ago. I am including the funds for this in the fundraising goal. I have estimated $12 each for 18 active students.
- Need Represented: These are a wonderfully unique group of students who share common interests, and this is a great way for them to come together and feel part of something. I sponsor this club on my own time, and I do spend money out of my own pocket, but would like some help on these bigger items.
- Academic Impact: This club promotes reading and writing inside and outside of the classroom, as well as promoting a sense of community and acceptance.
- Student Population: All students are welcome to participate in the club. I have students from Hillcrest High School grades 9-12, as well as a couple of Hillcrest students who are currently virtual. These students participate via Zoom every week.
