3 Simple Parenting Ideas with Impact

Click here to see some simple high impact parenting ideas.

Health Action Book Club

In partnership with the Hudson Hospital Foundation and Little Free Library, River Crest is offering students in grades K through 5 the opportunity to be part of a Health Action Book Club! Students will brainstorm healthy living topics that are important to them, read books on their topics, and collaborate to carry out a related project to help their community! Some of the projects already completed have been a giant “healthy” puzzle by the EP Rock Club, an original play by the Houlton Club and a “Little Free Farmers Market” (with trading cards), by Willow River students. Now it is River Crest’s turn!

  • Who? Students in grades K – 5 (Our older club members will help mentor the younger!)
  • Where? At River Crest, meeting right after school, until 5:30 pm 
  • When? Meetings will take place on Mondays.  We will meet Monday, Nov. 18 through Monday, Dec. 9
  • Why? To make the world a healthier place!
  • What? Follow this link for more information! https://littlefreelibrary.org/health-action-book-club/
