The primary goal of Writing Club is to help the children expand their writing abilities and method skills through creative discussion and opportunity for generating written and graphic material. Volunteer opportunities include helping to generate ideas for creative writing and attending the bi-weekly Writing Club Sessions by helping children delve into their creative writing side. There are opportunities for demonstrating creative writing with technology to include MS Word, MS PowerPoint, MS Publisher, as well as cameras, video recording, podcasts, news generation via newsletters and live televised or recorded sessions.
Mary Gregorini, 4th Grade Teacher, is the primary Writing Club Coordinator. Volunteer Coordinator Roles and Responsibilities include supporting Mary with bi-weekly sessions and providing expertise in any of the above areas, as well as being responsible for the children in attendance. Coordinators work to encourage students to appreciate and value their writing experiences, as well as those of their classmates.
All volunteers are SHIELD certified by the Archdiocese of Baltimore.
