Student leaders and advisors for clubs and activities need to be reminded that they are important and valued members of your school. Giving them a boost at the beginning of the year can give your activity program the impetus it requires to get things off with the right amount of energy and attitude. It also doesn’t require a lot of money to show these people that you value their contributions.
The following kits can be put together by your leadership group. They can be put into a plastic bag, but a clear ball used as a Christmas decoration is a much more effective container.
