KSE Advisors in Action
From Viking Elementary, Wisconsin
Advisor: Instructor, Cathy Burges
At Viking Elementary School in Holmen, Wisconsin I facilitate two KSE Clubs. The third and fourth grade club each meet monthly. We begin each meeting with the KSE Promise. Next we have the treasury report. You may be wondering how we raise money for our club. Well it is really up to the children. I encourage them to initiate the ideas and work with the support of their families. The children have raised money by taking out the garbage, raking leaves, shoveling driveways, picking up trash, keeping their rooms clean, donating tooth fairy money or allowance, donating money they find in the furniture or on the sidewalk, having bake sales and craft sales, and recycling aluminum cans. The money raised by the children is used to sponsor Earth saving projects brought forth to the club by the children. In the past we have donated money to sick children and sponsored gorillas, whales, dolphins, and koalas.
