September | This is how I…Create

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!
Our meetings will begin next week and we are looking ahead to a year of wonderful activities starting with the month of September. 
First things first, we have a Welcome Bag for you that includes helpful supplies for our group activities. We will schedule a quick drop-off with each family this upcoming week to get those to you.

Ready to start…let’s jump in!!

Group Meeting | Thursday, Sept. 24

We will focus on storytelling: some stories can be funny, some serious, some exciting. Come to the group with a story from your life—either written or something you can describe to share with the group. Demonstrate different book cover examples. Take time to design a cover for the story.

Chess with Friends

Thursdays in April from 2pm-3pm. In January, our chapter’s Chess Day with the East Columbia 55+ Center was AWESOME!  I loved seeing our students playing and learning from opponents ages 60-80+!  As a result of that interest and in the spirit of TEAM we will continue to play together online at   If you have not visited the site before. It is extremely kid-friendly with chess lessons and the ability to play games against opponents.

Check your email for information to participate.

Zoom Thursdays!

Thanks to technology, we can continue to meet together virtually.  We will amend our regular schedule and pivot to activities that will be interactive and engaging online.  Please sign up in advance to let us know if your children will participate!  The virtual meetings will be 35-40 minutes and will be a lot of fun!  Please have a pencil, paper, and crayons (or markers) on hand for your children to use during the meeting.
