No Sew Blankets with Key Club
Many successful students earn awards and recognition on a regular basis, but what about the students who work really hard, but often go unnoticed? The Kiwanis Club of Oak Harbor provides a quarterly award to one student in each elementary classroom to the student who has worked really hard at meeting a goal and making improvements in their work.
Santa Orange Project
The goal is to deliver 200 no sew blankets to Seattle Children's Hospital. This started as a Key Club project but has become an Oak Harbor Kiwanis Family Project.
The Kiwanis Club of Oak Harbor escorts Santa Claus to each Pre-school and Kindergarten classroom in Oak Harbor in mid December, where he presents each student with an orange brought for them from the North Pole. It is a highlight of the year for most.
Every third grade student in Oak Harbor is presented with their very own dictionary courtesy of the Kiwanis Club of Oak Harbor. Teachers use these dictionaries to construct lessons, and the students are able to use the dictionary for homework, reference or independent learning.
