May was a marvelous month to be a member of Boys & Girls Club of Placer County. With the school year winding down, members and staff alike made the most out of those last few weeks of after school programming.
Mother’s Day Tea was a well attended event at all three sites. Members made decorations and centerpieces, prepared musical selections and skits, baked cookies & cupcakes, and of course tea to serve to their mothers.
After eight weeks of sessions, the teen SMART Girls program concluded this month. Beginning next fall these young women will have the opportunity to gain valuable leadership skills as they plan and facilitate the 8 week session for our 3rd & 4th grade girls. To kick off this new and exciting program, the Teen girls hosted our young 3rd& 4th graders for a spa day in the Teen Center. Girls participated in different stations, such as nails, hair, a photo booth and dream boards and had the opportunity to bond with our teen SMART Girls.
Our E.V. Cain Extension hosted the Auburn Hip Hop Congress and the Rocklin Free Flow Academy at the Urban Arts Day event on May 5th. Middle School Members participated in graffiti art, a parkour demonstration and music mixing.
