East Coventry Lion Cubs:
October 14th 2014 - Today 28 members of the East Coventry Lion Cubs were welcomed by Lion Terry Stouffer. They enjoyed a presentation to learn about the Club and all of the wonderful things they will embark upon this year. We brainstormed ideas and activities in which the Cubs would like to participate in this year.
November 14th 2014 - Today the Cubs organized and decorated boxes for the Annual East Coventry Thanksgiving Food Drive. The Cubs decided to open the drive to the whole school rather than just second grade in order to collect more food for the families. The students arranged the boxes arround the school, wrote speeches to introduce the drive to each class in EC, and also delivered the speech on the announcements each day. The students will collect the boxes at the end of the month to be taken to the families.
December 9th 2014 - Today the East Coventry Lion Cubs designed Christmas Cards for the residents at Manatowny Manor. They were in the holiday spirit as they listened to music and filled their hearts with joy :)
January 13, 2015 -Today the East Coventry Lion Cubs reviewed the guidelines for the Lions Peace Poster Contest. They spent this meeting gathering ideas, brainstorming and working together to discuss peace and what sharing peace means to them. They then began their rough drafts of their posters! The Cubs are excited to share their work and art.
The week of March 16-20 is the Going for the Greens Celebration in OJR. This year we are recognizing broccoli and our theme centers around the “royal crowns” of broccoli and “stalking nutrients”. On Monday, we will be sampling stir fry broccoli and on Tuesday, we will be sampling raw broccoli. Each day on the announcements, fun facts about broccoli and it’s nutritional benefits will be read. From Tuesday to Friday, students can vote if they like raw broccoli, cooked broccoli, or both. On Friday, we will be pulling names from our voters to win a few special prizes. The Lion Cubs has been helping Mrs. Baily put this program together and today during our meeting, they created posters about broccoli to hang around the school to encourage all of the EC students to participate in the "Going for the Greens Celebration". They will also be decorating the cafeteria!
April 14, 2015 -Today the East Coventry Lion Cubs met to work on their Peace Posters. There was wonderful discussion on peace, and what it means to each Cub. The most challenging part of the poster for the Cubs was the fact that they are not able to use words. They worked hard creating their Peace Art using symbols and colors. The cubs also helped out a teacher in her classroom as she is unable to move things around and needed a lot of rearraning done. The Lion Cubs continue to impress even themselves with their unique artistic abililities and natural citizenship instincts! :)
May 11, 2015 - Today the East Coventry Lion Cubs met to continue to work on their Peace Posters. They also designed all kinds of advertising for the upcoming PTA Golf Outing. The cubs encouraged all families to attend. The posters look wonderful and will definitely increase the excitement of the event! Since it is such a beautiful day, the Cubs took advantage and completed their work outside to welcome Spring :)
June 6, 2015 - Today 20 East Coventry Lion Cubs were officially inducted into the Lion Cubs program. The Cubs and their advisors were honored and proud to become official. We celebrated with water ice and other treats. They look forward to continuing their memberships next year!
