HELP FOR HARVEY DRIVE A SUCCESS!
The Key Club of Arcadia is proud to announce they have raised over $920 with a school wide money drive to support the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Titled Help for Harvey, the money collected from the two week drive was donated to the Kiwanis Texas Children’s Fund for Hurricane Relief. Huge thanks to the students and teachers who supported the drive, to the work of Key Club’s Co Vice President Abe Speck who chaired the program, Treasurer Andrew Constantinou, and to Jacob Staudenmaier for donating his time to make an ad to promote the fundraiser on A.N.N. Key Club of Arcadia was just reactivated at Arcadia this year.
The club’s mission is service oriented within the school, local community and beyond. In addition to the Help for Harvey Drive, Key Club has implemented a mentoring program for the students in the after school classes at Ingleside called Titan Time. Several times a month, Key Club members visit Ingleside on Monday afternoons to spend time with the students playing chess, gardening, dance, etc.
To date the club has over 50 members.
The club will also be working with St. Mary’s Food in November.

Arcadia is proud to announce the expansion of the Arcadia GOAL Peer Tutoring to all student athletes. GOAL, which is short for Growing Our Academic Learning, is a student run tutoring program that is now available to all team sports. Each team has selected delegates to help facilitate the students in need of support and matching them with fellow students on the team that can tutor in various subjects. GOAL began two years ago within the Arcadia Soccer Club as a way to help with eligibility within the boys soccer team which had been plagued with grade issues. Since GOAL was started, every member of the soccer team has been eligible. Arcadia decided to implement this program school wide this fall and is pioneering this concept within the district. In addition, GOAL has advanced its technology by implementing Google Classroom, Google Slides, and Google Forms to make GOAL more accessible for student athletes needing help from the delegates/tutors. Any student athlete needing any type of academic intervention should talk to their coach and/or GOAL delegate. Tutoring sessions can take place before school, at lunch, or after school at no cost to the student.
