Introduction: The Club Hub Chart: Helping Students Decide the Club of Interest
In my after school program, we want all students to be aware of our club offerings and have the opportunity to participate in the activities. At the beginning of the program day when we make our announcements, many students are not present as they are participating in school activities. Creating this Club Hub chart that will be at the parents check out area will ensure that students and parents have the opportunity to view upcoming club offerings. Students will then sign up for their interested club with their after school program leader.
