Introduction to the Builders Club "K-Team" at PMS
The Builders Club is sponsored by the Poquoson Kiwanis. Our meetings are right after school on selected Mondays each month, until 3:30pm in the Poquoson Middle School Library. Faculty advisors include Mrs. Tyler, Mrs. Lantz, and Mrs. Giovani.
Each Builders Club is led by a student board.
What We Stand for: Our vision is to develop competent, capable, caring leaders through the vehicle of service. Members learn to work together and develop servant-leader skills as they serve their school and community.
Our Motto: Building Leaders
Projects: Our Builders Club assists the Poquoson Kiwanis with their fundraiser at the Seafood Festival and the Pig Roast in the spring. Also, the Builders Club will help the Poquoson Middle School Library with its "All for Books" project.
Experience: We would like for each Builders Club member to attend a free Kiwanis Breakfast meeting in April. Permission notes will be sent home for a parent signature. You will need to be at Tabernacle Methodist Church by 7:30am and the Kiwanis will bring you to school at 8:30am. This is an excused tardy.
Expenses: The Poquoson Kiwanis Club takes care of all membership dues. All we ask is for each member to supply refreshments for one meeting. The refreshment commitee will let you know what to bring and when. We keep your total cost to about $5. Also we might ask for donations: candy, ribbon, stickers, etc. which we will use in making gifts for others. This will be on a volunteer basis.
Membership: According to the Builders Club by-laws, any student of Poquoson Middle School who is in good standing with the Principal may join the club. Students will need to fill in the application and have a Kiwanis photography release consent form signed by a parent or guardian. As a member, you are expected to attend all meetings and participate in the scheduled activities. Arrangements are to be made for all members to be picked up by 3:30pm. An activity bus is provided to take students home.
Our Meetings: After snack and attendance, the officers will ring the bell and announce the beginning of the meeting. The first item on the agenda will be the pledge to the flag, followed by introductions, officers' reports, old business, new business and committee work.
