Rosa Parks Elementary PTSA

 

Rosa Parks Take Action Club (TAC)

 

The Rosa Parks Take Action Club (TAC) is a student organization that promotes leadership through service in our local and global communities. Students participate in initiatives that expand their understanding of the challenges others face and work with each other and community members to address those challenges.

 The club is run by fourth and fifth grade students who express interest by submitting the attached application. Approximately 20 students will be chosen to lead the club; those not chosen and younger students will have numerous opportunities throughout the year to be part of the change by participating in service events at school and within the community.

 The Take Action Club partners with Free the Children, a non-profit organization, and is sponsored by the PTSA. It is overseen by two parent coordinators and a staff member.

 Applicants should have a strong interest in learning about local and global issues, serving others, leading fellow students in meaningful projects, and of course, having fun! Those accepted must intend to attend all regularly scheduled meetings, which will be held two Fridays a month during the lunch/recess period. Additional optional opportunities will be available after school and on the weekends.

 A complete application will include:

 -Application form (2 sides) with attached answers 

Applications are due on Friday, September 22 and should be submitted to the teacher or main office. Regretfully, we will not be able to consider late applications.

 Students accepted will be asked to pay a $15 club fee which will cover the cost of a TAC t-shirt and program/material costs, and complete an Emergency Form. Scholarships are available; please contact the school counselor.
