    What is a Kiwanis Kid (K-Kid)?

    A K-Kid is a kid who has a heart to serve.  When students have a heart to serve, they begin to make service a part of their character and a part of their daily life.  K-Kids at Chalmette Elementary will be involved in many aspects of serving the community and our school. 

         K-Kids will meet the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month. The first meeting will be held Tuesday, September 20, 2016 from 3:40 -4:45.

    An on-going initiative of K-Kids is to be involved and serving others.   Each month, the K-Kids will sponsor a collection of items to be donated to local charities.  A proposed schedule of events and collection items has been devised to support the efforts of K-Kids:

    September- Induction
