Book Club


We kicked off Summer Reading's theme of Build a Better World with The Best Yes. We thought that Building a Better World Begins with YOU and so we had better make sure we were doing well.  And so we read The Best Yes to help us make our best decisions. 

Our next book club will be held on July 24th at 1pm.  We will be discussing the book by Brene Brown The Gifts of Imperfection.

Our brick building project was cancelled on July 10 so the teens got together to play board games.  It was anything but boring.

And did you see our fun time capsule day?  We have it posted on facebook and we had an article written about it as well by one of our teen council members.


We were just made aware of this website to help you find a JOB.  A job sounds fun, yes???  Here it is -> Jobs For Teens HQ
