    4-H is the world's largest youth organization.  Here at Jewel Sumner Middle we have an active club and welcome any student who is looking for fun and meaningful community service activities.  We take field trips each year and participate in many activities to help better our community.  Our goal is to develop our young speople into productive, caring citizens.  The 4-H motto is "To make the best better!"    The club sponsors are Ms. Splane & Mrs. Morgan.  The dues for 4-H are $15 and must be paid by the deadline of September 20th.  They can be paid with your school supply fee or paid separately.  The  membership fees should be turned into the homeroom teacher, who will turn them into the office for Ms. Splane to write a receipt.  The 4-H meetings are held once a month.  Our first meeting will be held in September.  Only students who have paid thier dues by this date will be eligible to attend.  We will discuss our officer elections, the Tangipahoa Parish Fair and National 4-H Week.


    We are always happy to have parent volunteers!  If you have a special skill or talent and would want to help with one of our projects - gardening, sewing, baking, livestock, fishing, woodworking, etc. - please contact Ms. Splane or Mrs. Morgan.  Our students need to learn skills such as these!
