    Our chapter likes to go to different churches , libraries, and schools to read about saving the environment. And we do activities on how to recycle and what materials can be recycled.

    Our SAVE chapter has worked with the students of our school to create a poster that our students help create with words of kindness, love, and encouragement. We are currently working on a way to help with the acceptance of diversity and encourage people to be tolerate with a Diversity rally.

    My SAVE chapter promotes a peaceful environment by ensuring that all of our members are kind to one another. This month, to give the gift of giving, we have been teaming up with other clubs to host one of our largest service projects. We have assigned classes a number of children from less fortunate families to volunteer bringing gifts and necessities for this upcoming holiday. Our goal is to get each child a bike and personally deliver each family their gifts!

    My SAVE chapter is keeping a peaceful environment in many ways. We teamed up with another organization on campus and we are conducting a can food drive “since this is the giving season”. We also had our resource officer go around to the freshman classes and teach the importance of safety. My chapter pick up trash from around the school to improve the environment around the school. The last thing we do during lunch we give each kid a posted note and post them all around the school.

    Our save chapter works to keep a peaceful enviorment around the school by performing acts of kindness. Recently we handed out compliment cards around the school. As for service projects, we have not done any yet however we are constantly looking at possible service projects and are planning to do one in the near future.

    My SAVE chapter sales chocolate bars around Christmas to buy for others or even just for yourself! It is a nice activity to see others faces light up when they get one! Another thing we do is called “Candy Gram”. That’s where you buy someone a candy cane and put cute inspiring notes on the candy cane. Later we deliver them and it is just so amazing to watch their reaction when they get one!

    In the past weeks we have wrapped up our trips to Woodhill elementary school in which wr read to the students there. On December 11th our SAVE club visited the Boys and Girls club to do a Christmas activity with the children. It was really great to interact with them and ask about their Christmas wish lists, as well as teach them about the origin of Christmas. Coming up in the next few months we will be volunteering for Senior Citizen Prom at the recreation center. I will elaborate more on this when the event is over!

    My SAVE chapter is keeping things very peaceful and calm by having fun fundraisers! We sell candy bars and during Christmas we sell candy canes! We can send our friends candy canes with inspiring messages on them. It as well keeps the peace between one another!

    At White Oak High, our SAVE chapter mentors students and promotes anti-violent messages through announcements and posters.We assist local families in need during the holiday season. We have donated turkies and other goods to local food drives. We will also volunteer for Christmas Cheer to assist families in need this Christmas.

    My SAVE chapter, Campus Security Council, maintains a safe environment at our school by engaging in multiple community projects. The best way to encourage something is to do it yourself, and that is exactly what Campus Security Council hopes to do. We make announcement for suicide prevention week, we passed out random acts of kindness cards for world kindness day, we volunteer at our elementary schools, and also team up with other clubs such as SADD or the local police department. By conducting in school and community projects, Campus Security Council members hope to set an example and spread the message of giving back and stoping the violence.

    My SAVE Chapter does many activities throughout the school year that promote nonviolence as a way to keep a peaceful environment at our school. At East Chapel Hill High School, my SAVE Chapter sets up booths throughout the school year with information regarding what SAVE does and provide information to students on the importance of a safe school environment. During booth events, my SAVE Chapter also have fun games and activities set up as a way for students to learn about SAVE while enjoying it with fun games with their friends. Right now, my SAVE Chapter is contacting local elementary schools in the district to have a time where my SAVE Chapter can read “20 Twinkling Stars” to pre-k kids. My SAVE Chapter is also contacting the local Ronald McDonald house to find a time where students can volunteer to cook dinner for those who are staying there.

    The Cuthbertson SAVE club loves to do service projects and help out around the school to inform the students on how to be safe and smart in the environment. We put up signs monthly to inform everyone of the monthly themes and giving information about them. Our SAVE chapter is doing operation Christmas child and reading the educating book, “Twenty Twinkling Stars.” We are also trying to work with the local women’s shelter to provide more help in the community.

    My SAVE Chapter at Chapel Hill High School loves to do service projects to inform students and keep a safe environment. We love to have our students sign banners surrounding the theme for the month, such as safe driving or weapon safety. One project we are going to do this month is a seat belt check. At the end of the school day, all of our SAVE chapter members check all the cars as they exit the student parking lot. If the students in the car are wearing seat belts, then they get Smarties candy for being smart. If they are not wearing a seat belt, then they get a Dum Dum lollipop.

    My SAVE Chapter at E. A. Laney High School keeps a peaceful environment by creating inclusive activities that engage our entire student body. For instance, an idea that has really grown on us is that of making note cards and handing them out at the end of the school day with either compliments on them or “kindness challenges”. Also, setting a table up after school, with information about certain violence-related issues and allowing students to participate in a mini service project such as creating posters to display around school not only educates students about pressing issues in our school and community, but also allows them to take action. Honoring the theme of this month, Reaching Out Through Service, E. A. Laney SAVE has several service projects planned. To kick off December, our chapter is volunteering at 1st Baptist Church’s Feeding Ministry early in the month, which will involve preparing food and serving it to those in need. We are also “adopting” a family from our school which means that our chapter will buy gifts for the family for the holidays. On the last day of school before winter break, we are going to pass out challenge cards to students as they leave campus. Challenge cards are simply note cards with things like “Compliment a stranger today” or “Thank someone who you appreciate” written on them. Lastly, over winter break, some of our SAVE officers will read a book about giving and helping others to a group of students at a local daycare.

    West Clayton Elementary School is continuing our ADOPT THE COPS initiative by continuing our interaction with the Clayton Police Department officers that we have adopted. We sent a special snack assortment accompanied with a thank you letter relating how thankful we are for being served and protected to the department in November and will send more snacks in the month of December. We welcome all the visits and interactions that are occurring as part of this initiative.
