Join the Multicultural Club to celebrate and gain
an appreciation of diverse cultures!
Multicultural Club meetings are held Tuesdays
in Ms. Beachem's room #603 at 2:30 to 3:30 pm.
If any parents would like to come to our club meeting and share something about their culture, a "show and tell," or would like to teach us how to make something representative of their culture or demo how to make a meal representative of the culture, we would love to have your participation.
Or, if you know someone who can come and share their culture with us, please contact
Ms. Beacham at beachemd@OkaloosaSchools.com. Volunteer paperwork would need to be completed prior to participation. We have notaries here on campus for your convenience.
ANNUAL "CHANGE FOR CHILDREN" FUNDRAISER
March 4 to 8, 2019
Our goal is to raise more than $4,000!
Anyone may contribute to the fundraiser container in teacher's classroom or directly to the Multicultural Club sponsor. Students are asked to donate their change (pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters) for the "Change for Children" fundraiser campaign supporting Children in Crisis, Inc., a non-profit organization which runs The Children's Neighborhood in Fort Walton Beach. "Change" will be collected only in World Cultures/History/Civics classes which will compete against each other for the most collected funds.
If a check is written to donate funds, it must be written to or made out to Ruckel Middle School with "Change for Children" fundraiser on the memo line. If needed, I can provide a receipt for tax purposes.
The collected funds provide homes and establish hope to the foster children of our community. This organization addresses critical community needs: a stable nurturing environment, students remaining at the same school, and sisters and brothers remaining together. The Multicultural Club visits the Children's Neighborhood in Ft. Walton Beach during the summer to spend time with the children living there and also provides gifts at Christmas time.
