EClub Events and Activities
PAWS Trip #2
EClub members have volunteered a couple times already this year at PAWS Animal Shelter in Albion, NY and plan to return again. Students spent their time cleaning and working with the cats and dogs at the shelter. Community service teaches skills, thinking on your feet and working with others. “It teaches you things that you might have not known”, says Kaitlyn Carmer. Another EClub member, Kathryn Donner, feels that community service is important because “it helps those in need.” Kathryn had a great idea to make dog toys before EClub’s first visit to PAWS. The dogs and puppies loved the toys so much that she taught everyone in EClub how to make them, this time for the cats too! “My favorite part of the trip was the cute kitties,” said Larcey Dwyer. “Animal shelters need a lot of help, they have so much stuff to do!” exclaimed Kathryn after her first visit. There is a link on this page to PAWS Animals Shelter to learn more about how you may volunteer time or donate items to help the animals.
PAWS Animal Shelter
EClub spent a morning helping out at PAWS Animal Shelter... we did lots of cleaning and lots of cuddling cats and dogs!
"Community service has taught me all kinds of skills and increased my confidence. You go out there and think on your feet, work with others and create something from nothing. That's what life's all about."
Club Goes to an Escape Room
EClub went to Into the Enigma an Escape Room owned by entrepreneur Tim Elliott in Medina, NY. Students successfully worked as a team to problem solve clues to make their way out of the room in only an hour. There was a lot of creative thinking! This was a great experience enjoyed by everyone!
EClub learns about entrepreneurship from local businessman
Small business owner and entrepreneur Tim Elliott spoke with students in EClub about starting up and owning a business. Tim Elliott is the owner of Brushstrokes Studios and Into the Enigma in Medina, NY. Students listened intently to his advice and tips on being an entrepreneur and positive encouragement that they too could be successful business owners someday.
