Jubilee International Studies Club

JoAnna Arnold- Sponsor                   

Description:

An international club at our school will provide students additional opportunities to become involved in service projects, both locally and internationally.  This club will more specifically help students answer the question: 'What will you do with what you are learning?" Any student enrolled at our school who wishes to participate in this extra-curricular activity may join.  

Mission Statement:

As a member of this organization, students will:

  • Engage others as part of a global community by effectively communicating in foreign languages
  • Identify the differences that make them unique and gain respect for the talents and contributions of others
  • Appreciate the diversity in our community and these effects on American culture
  • Utilize their new skills so they can be applied in the real world
  • Emerge as dynamic members of our school and embrace the challenges of making a meaningful difference

Cost:

Dues will be $20.00 per academic school year. The proceeds from this money will be designated to offset the costs for:

  • cultural field trips
  • service projects designed by the students
  • technology to be used with the foreign language classes
  • medals recognizing academic excellence in French and Spanish for awards programs at the end of the year.
  • School international fair, fiestas, or celebrations
  • any other project or need that the club wishes to participate in during the school year
  • technology to enhance foreign language education
  • supplies needed for classroom activities throughout the school year

 

Fundraiser:

One time during the school year, the club may participate in a fundraising event to further support the service project they have chosen.
