Our elementary school doesn't have anything for the kids other then a hand full of sports (basket ball, football and wrestling). So if your kid is not into sports, they are just out of luck. Well my son and I were talking and he was saying he wishes there was something more. He like photography, art, music, drama, ect. Well, I suggested that he could look at starting a student led drama club. He thought that was great, but also wanted to have maybe a photography club as well. Since it is a small school I suggested that maybe we could look at getting one club started that has many outlets.. like a "culture" club. Something that helps promote and support creativity in the students. I was unable to make it to the first PTP meeting because my dd had a follow up apt with her doctor. So I asked one of the other moms to bring it up. Well when I got home I had a message that they nominated me coordinator for the "culture club"... which is cool, I'm excited.. just unsure of how to get things going. I want this to be student led. So... any advice on where to take things from here? I don't want to go into it telling the kids what they will be doing, I want them to decide what it is they would like to do, and help them make it happen.
Would love to hear any advice or suggestions.
