K-Kids Club Hosts Charter Ceremony

The Cavanaugh Elementary School K-Kids Club hosted its official Charter Ceremony on February 22 in the school's media center. K-Kids is the largest service organization for elementary school students, boasting more than 20,000 members worldwide. Cavanaugh's club is the first K-Kids program in Fort Smith. 

In attendance were several representatives form the Commisiary Kiwanis Club, one of Cavanaugh's Partners in Education. Fort Smith Mayor Sandy Sanders, as well as FSPS District representatives were also on hand for the event. 

The ceremony kicked-off with Chuck Raney, Kiwanis Club Advisor, giving the official K-Kids Club charter to Principal Hank Needham. The officers and advisor also received the K-Kids gong, gavel and desk flag. President Megan Jowers, in turn, presented a ceremonial patch to Kiwanis for sponsoring the student organization.

Mayor Sanders Club sponsor spoke to the group about the importance of civic organizations and encouraged students to stay involved in clubs such as Kiwanis throughout their lives. He then recognized each member and presented each with a K-Kids certificate. Alyson Mason, faculty sponsor, also presented each student with an official membership card and lapel pin. Prior to the ceremony, Kiwanis members served the students and guests pizza for lunch. 

The Cavanaugh K-Kids members have already participated in several community service projects including a canned food drive and in making cards to send to local nursing home residents and disabled veterans. The group also volunteered to serve and clean at the school's chili supper and talent show in February.

The purpose of the club is to provide opportunities for working together in service to the students' school and community. The group seeks to develop leadership potential, foster the development of a strong moral character and to encourage loyalty to school, community and nation.
