Tokeneke Kids Care Club2017-2018
Kids Care Club is a national organization dedicated to helping children develop the spirit of charity and pro-active compassion through hands-on community projects. We work together to make a difference in our school, our community, and our world–but we also save time each meeting for dancing, games, and snacks!
The Tokeneke Kids Care Club is open to interested students (first through fifth grade). We conduct open registration in mid September and enroll the first 50 students into the club. Our meetings take place one Monday most months of the school year from 2:55-3:45pm in the Common Room. Meetings will generally feature a guest speaker, a creative project and a nut-free snack. Past Kids Care activities include projects such as clothing drives and food collections and annual events such as the turkey drive and Groove-a-thon.
We rely heavily on the parents of Kids Care Club members to volunteer at our monthly meetings.

Groove-a-thon to Benefit Read School
I want to thank each and every one of you for making today such a fun, memorable afternoon, and for your generosity. Every student had a huge smile on their face from start to finish and cannot wait to use the playground equipment! The entire Tokeneke community has shown so much compassion and generosity towards our students and teachers over the last few years and it is so appreciated.Diana Lipman
The duel Groove-a-thons at Tokeneke and Read School were a tremendous success! We had more than 310 kids attending the events at both schools–and all were having fun Groovin’ for a Great Cause! With the generous donations from the Tokeneke community, we were able to raise over $3,900 to benefit the Read School! Kids Care Club and the student council thank you for all your support. A HUGE shoutout and thank you to DJ Dale Daniels (www.daledaniels.com) and Dance on the DL (www.danceonthedl.com) at Tokeneke and to DJ Ron Jones at Read for energizing the crowd with great entertainment!
