With test scores becoming the guiding focus in public education, elementary schools are focusing less and less on teaching good character.
That’s where KiDs Beach Club® has stepped into the gap. First, by giving every child in every club a KiDs Beach Club® Explorers Study Bible and then focusing on 24 different character words throughout the school year, teaching them these words and lessons through the lens of scripture.
An assistant principal at one of our partnering schools recently told us, “I can definitely tell that having a Beach Club in our school has helped. I think it’s teaching them good life lessons that carry over into the school setting.” When these kids end up in the office for making a bad choice she is able to draw from the character words that are being taught to reinforce making good choices the next time. “I ask them, what are you learning in Beach Club? Is that really how they’re telling you how to treat other people and how you show that you respect yourself and others?”
KiDs Beach Club® is making a huge impact ministering to nearly 11,000 students in 164 schools across the nation but we have millions more that need to be reached. Please help us to reach these kids before that window closes.
Give to KiDs Beach Club® on Giving Tuesday to help us open more clubs and teach these important character words inside public schools.
