What is Kardivas?
Kardivas is a character club for 5th grade girls that exists to encourage young girls that they are uniquely created with a purpose, that they have integrity and worth, and that they have something valuable to contribute. For 15 years, Kardivas has been setting LTISD girls up for success in middle school through their weekly meetings, service projects and social events. Every 5th grade girl is invited to join.
What is the club like?
Our meetings are fun and lively. We have a snack, give awards, play ice breaker games and have meaningful discussions Topics include: telling the truth, why gossip is bad, how to be a good friend, setting boundaries, forgiving others, and being thankful. In addition to the weekly meetings, Kardivas offers social events, service projects and parties which may be held outside of the Thursday meeting time, but are purely optional.
How is the club organized?
Kardivas is organized and managed by a team of leader moms who have 5th grade daughters at each school. High school senior girls serve as mentors for the club and lead the activities and discussions at club meetings.
When and where does Kardivas meet?
Kardivas meets on Thursdays starting in October through early April, right after school until 4pm on your school's campus. Your campus Kardivas leader will inform you of the exact location of the meeting room before the first meeting.
How much does it cost?
Kardivas is offered through Community Programs Enrichment Classes. The cost for the entire year is $110, which covers weekly snacks, supplies, t-shirts and incidentals. Scholarships are available upon request.
