In 1912, A.B. Graham wanted a safe place for kids to go after school. So she started a program at her home that would provide a safe, fun place for children to play and learn. Instead of calling the program 4-H, at the time it was called, "The Tomato Club" or the "Corn Growing Club". Now 100 years later we call it 4-H. The 4-H program at our school is run by Julie Green and Susan Fay.

The next sign up is January 3 but the classes start January 17. Clubs cost $5.00 each or $10.00 for 3. Activities include: Incredible Edible, Lobo Den, Roller Coaster Tycoon, Drama Musical, Tennis Club, and a few more. The clubs start at 2:45 P.M. and go till 4:45 P.M. on Monday-Tuesday and Thursday-Friday.   On Wednesdays they start at 2:00 P.M. and end at 4:00 P.M

The 4-H program also does service projects.  The first one is donating coats for Tabitha's Way.  So if you have a coat you don’t need or is too small, please bring it to Julie Green's room.

Also, if you drink Capri Sun, turn in the empty pouches to Ms. Green.  She sends them in to the company for cash to help the 4-H program. Just bring them to her room.
