October 3rd – The Lion Cubs had their first meeting of the year today. They were introduced to Lion Terry Stouffer who presented the cubs with a program on the history of Lions and Lion Cubs and how we can help those less fortunate.

November 9th - November 11th - West Vincent celebrated Veterans Day in a big way! We hosted a breakfast and had an assembly honoring veterans who were family members of the students and staff. In order to get ready for this day, Lions Cubs decorated the lobby with many pictures of the veterans. We also decorated table clothes that were displayed during the breakfast. Lions Cubs also had the opportunity to talk to some staff about their family members who were on the wall and served our country.

December 13 -This month, the Lions Cubs were busy spreading holiday cheer! We helped box all of the wonderful gifts that the students of West Vincent had brought in to be donated. The gifts are being sent to the Children’s Hospital. We packed over 15 big boxes of gifts!

We also made beautiful snowflakes, colored pictures and made cards that are to be hung up in the Coatesville Veterans Center by one of our fifth grade teachers, Margie Jardine. She uses the snowflakes, pictures, and cards to decorate the center for their holiday talent show.

Monday 1/9 - The Lions Cubs at West Vincent met last week and spread kindness throughout the school! Each Lion Cub wrote about 20 post-it notes containing kind words or words of encouragement. We then put a post-it note on every student’s desk in the whole school! Students received a surprise in the morning when they were greeted with a message of kindness on their desk. We challenged the school to fill someone’s bucket that day with a kind word.

Tuesday 1/31- Today Lions Cubs made Pennies for Patients posters and hung them through out the school. We learned about the Pennies for Patients charity and how it helps kids with cancer. We also put together the boxes that would go in each classroom to collect the change brought in.

Tuesday 2/21- Today the Lions Cubs went around to each classroom and collected the Pennies for Patients boxes. We then split up into small groups and counted how much money each class has raised so far. We wrote the totals on the box and delivered them back to the classroom. As a group, we discussed the importance of the cause we were donating too and brainstormed ways in which we could motivate out student body to donate more. Tuesday 2/28 we raised $1,181.49!

3/22 Today the Lions Cubs prepared for the Easter Food Drive that will begin Monday 3/27. We talked about the importance of helping others, especially when they are in our community. We broke into groups and some kids made posters to hang around the school while others decorated the donation bins that are placed in the lobby. The Lions Cubs are very excited at the chance to help others in our community.

4/20 April 18 - Today Lion Leah visited us to talk about the upcoming Warwick Park service project. I think it will be a fun day! When Lion Leah left, we went outside and potted plants for the Veterans Association. The students also decorated the pots with American flags and thanked the veterans for their service. It was a fun meeting!

5/25 – Lion Cubs were officially inducted into the club today. After the induction we watched a you tube video on how important helping out others can be.
