Key Club

 

Key Club

Instructor: Denise Pazand- Sponsor

Key Club is the oldest and largest service program for high school students. It's a student-led organization that teaches leadership within the projects that we do. Key Club members are teenagers seeking to cultivate leadership skills, develop friends and perform service projects within our communities. Key club is not only making a change in Rio Rancho, they're making a change throughout the United States.
Over the last year we have participated in the Watermelon Ranch Holiday Adopt a thon. We have made meals for 60 parents at Ronald McDonald House and continue collecting pop tabs for them in order to keep up the day to day needs of the families in residence. We have and will continue collecting pennies (change, dollars and checks are fine too) for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society the month of February. We will also coordinate The Run for the Zoo (for Cleveland H.S.) in April

Just a quick note about myself. I am very proud to say that I am a tenured teacher here at V. Sue Cleveland High School and have been here since our school first opened. I have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Fine Arts as well as a Masters in Special Education. I am also currently working on my Masters in Educational Leadership. I am a Case Manager for students with special needs and serve many of them as a Reading Specialist. Afterschool, I have the honor and title of Key Club advisor. Before Cleveland High School opened I was the advisor for Builders Club at Rio Rancho Mid High. Key Club and Builders Club work very closely with Kiwanis in Rio Rancho to work on altruistic projects that are most needed in our community and also providing leadership training and opportunities.

I live in Rio Rancho with my husband, two daughters and son. My oldest daughter is applying to grad school and my youngest son attends V. Sue Cleveland High School. I always tell my students that if they see me out in a store please do not feel shy to say, "hello". I enjoy children very much and look forward to our 2016-2017 school year working together.

Tasks   

INVOLVEMENT TOBACCO AWARENESS 
A statewide award was won by Faviola Marin.  Faviola is our Key Club Editor and was nominated for the New Mexico Public Health Association's Youth Award.  Faviola is a young person that has worked diligently on public health issues and who has made a difference.   This is a perfect description of Faviola and all her accomplishments! I also wanted to let you know that she will be attending the New Mexico Public Health Conference in Albuquerque on Thursday, April 6.  I'm always happy to share exciting news, especially when it involves deserved recognition of our hard working Key Club Tobacco Evolvement students. 

Pasta for Pennies
 Presented by Olive Garden is a service learning, character education and philanthropy program that gives students a unique experience making a difference through teamwork—working together to aid thousands of children and adults in the fight blood cancers like leukemia.
How it Works: Students collect spare change over a three-week period of the school's choice. We have chosen February because it is the month of love.  The change can come from friends or relatives or underneath the couch cushions. What's important is that the change is collected.
How it Works: Students collect spare change over a three-week period during February . The change can come from friends or relatives or underneath the couch cushions.
What's important is that the change is collected.


Why it's Easy: Key Club provides everything your class needs to run the program including:
1. Lesson plans that meet service learning and character education standards
2. Classroom collection boxes
3. Individual collection boxes
4. Educational video
5. Prizes and awards for classrooms (lunch provided by Olive Garden, and Krispy Kreme Doughnuts for best box design)

Contact a Key Club member or Key Club Advisor Denise Pazand in room C0110 ext. 52293 for more information. 
Students not only enjoy participating, but feel a great sense of pride in helping others. Their efforts will collect one more thing in addition to spare change—the gratitude of cancer patients and their families. If during the drop off portion any students are disruptive I apologize ahead of time. It takes a village to get these kinds of projects done and sometimes our villagers are restless. Just send them back to me or email me and I will corral them. If you did not get a box and want to participate email me and I will get one to you.                                                     

Rio Rancho's Big Event 2016 will be on November 19th.  The meeting place for all volunteers
will be located at Rio Rancho High School Portable 14.
The time we will meet is 8:30 AM.

Evolvement Tobacco Awareness Campaign
It’s funny, not “funny ha-ha” but “funny-odd,” that so many smokers still don’t fully understand what they’re inhaling into their body. Sure, everyone and their mother knows that smoking is dangerous and that it can (and likely will, eventually) kill you but according to a new study as many as half of smokers aren’t aware of what big tobacco does to keep them hooked on a deadly product. For more information click here.
Storehouse West in need of coats
Key Club will be collecting winter coats for kids in our community with a need.
Storehouse West is arranging the connection the service for our community.
Please let Mrs. Pazand know if you need us to come by your room and pick
up your donation. Coats will be cleaned by a dry cleaner in Rio Rancho so no
worries about cleaning.
The Big Event
Please come by Mrs. Pazand's room for a permission slip to attend this Rio Rancho community project. Wear old clothes and bring gardening gloves so that you are comfortable working in yards (it may be cold too so layer your clothing.) These people are unable to do the work themselves because of disabilities and/or age and really appreciate what we do for them every year.
