Inside Out Club Registration by Friday 10/5 (Free – Registration Required)

October 5, 2018

| Free

The Inside Out Club is coming to Abraham Lincoln this year!

Limited to 25 Spots, FREE Registration by 10/5/2018, 1st & 2nd Grade Only, Return Permission Slips to Your Teacher
Inside Out Club Permission Slip Fall 2018-downloadable

Dates:  October 11, November 1,  November 29, December 13

The Inside Out Club teaches kids to be kind, accepting, self-aware and so much more through volunteer projects and community awareness! Over 30 local not-for-profit charity organizations will be introduced helping our kids better understand our local needs and volunteer opportunities right here in our neighborhoods!

The Club is FREE for our Lincoln students! It’s only 1 hour approximately each month (will likely be on a Thursdays after school from 3:30-4:30 pm once a month) through the Fall and Spring offering 8 afternoons total for the year.

The Club is for 1st & 2nd grade (combined) and we may potentially add a second group in the Spring for 3-5th grades.  If you are interested in having your child participate, permission slips will go out the first week of October.

Volunteers Needed!

If you are able to volunteer for the hour (don’t need to commit to every month) your child will be guaranteed a spot in the club- otherwise it’s first come, first serve until all 25 spots fill up per group! We’ll do a separate sign up for Fall and Spring.
