Welcome to Crochet Club. We meet every Thursday before and after school until 4:30 in room 106. When we are not working on our individual projects, we are working up scrap yarn scarves for those in need of warmth in the cold. You are welcome to join us or simply donate yarn, hooks, or time to deliver our scarves and hats.

We are creating 5x8 flags from the United Nations to piece together for our Multicultural Fair on March 9th. Students, parents, and staff are welcome.
Students have already begin, but any assistance is greatly appreciated. We have several flags done and you are welcome to sign up and crochet the flags at home. We are looking to have them completed by the first of February so we will have time to piece them together.
