Among the hustle and bustle of quizzes, Extended Essays, Internal Assessments, extracurriculars and homework, there is always time for Smile Cards. As you walked into school, all you could see is smiles on the faces of students and faculty alike.
This year, Key Club, a hallmark community service organization of Sturgis East, collected over 3,000 Smile Cards written from Sturgis students and teachers. Cards were created over two days in advisory and given to the Key Club.
Katie Curran, Key Club President; Shreya Patel, Key Club Vice-President; Elizabeth Campbell; Key Club Secretary, Ariana Jackson, Key Club Treasurer; Katie Reinhardt, Key Club Board Editor and over 30 members orchestrated the implementation of this campaign to spread friendship and happiness.
“I admire Key Club's teamwork and commitment to making everyone in the school smile. It’s a pleasure leading and learning with such a great group of inspiring volunteers,” noted Katie Curran, Sturgis East Senior. She continued, mentioning that, “Smile Cards are a unique service project because they unite the whole school community. This is Key Club’s biggest project and I look forward to it every year”.
Sturgis East Senior Jensen Simmons gave positive feedback, noting, “I think smile cards are a unique aspect to our school and really shows what kind of community and atmosphere we have here at Sturgis. I think it's a very cool thing that we have an event where everyone in the entire school can get involved and do something to make people smile even when things are pretty stressful, especially at this time of the year.”
This year Key Club added delicious Hershey Kisses to the bags. Moreover, student Council donated candy canes to everyone in the school. Thank you to Mrs. Sharma, Ms. Daley, Mr. Yalden and Mr. Mathews for their support with Smile Cards!
