Before & After School Enrichment Activities for Our EMS Students
The Eudora Schools Foundation is pleased to team up with our middle school teachers and administrators to create engaging before and after-school enrichment program for our EMS students. We recognize the need and importance of additional hands-on learning opportunities particularly at this pivotal time in a middle school student's life.
We are thrilled to support these programs that help EMS students 1) build new skills and interest 2) develop selfconfidence 3) gain knowledge from a cross-disciplinary, real-world learning opportunities that support core subjects in their classroom curriculum. EMS students can sign-up with individual teachers or in the front office.

We play chess before school. The game is beautiful, challenging, and exhilarating. Being caught up in a close game fires up the brain in ways that few other things can.

Future Business Leaders of America is an engaging program that develops a student’s leadership and workplace skills. It helps students to see the importance of volunteering and encourages them to find new ways to assist in the community. This club would focus on community service along with learning leadership skills, and basic job skills.

This program would teach students basic universal skills on how to save a life. This program might inspire them to work in the medical field or it could help in a babysitting incident. This program would be an extension of health class.

Our goal is to give students the opportunity to understand and investigate domestic hunger in the U.S. and our own community. We will look at the causes, effects, and interventions of food insecurity and also participate in a community food mapping project. Our capstone project students will pack hundreds of delicious, healthy meals that are given to Eudora Food Pantry.
