Boyd-Buchanan School’s Key Club hosted its annual “Hot Wheels Project” at Martin-Boyd Christian Retirement Home last week.
The fun project gives Key Club members a creative venue through which to interact with the elderly residents. The students decorate the residents’ wheelchairs and walkers as they spend time talking and laughing with them. The socialization between the students and the residents benefits both generations as they both enjoy this time together.
This week is “Key Club Week” at Boyd-Buchanan School. Monday was “High Five Day” where all high school students are given a “High Five Day” sticker from the Key Club in first period.
Key Club sponsor and AP English teacher Jordan Bischell, said, “This day promotes positivity throughout the high school. It encourages students to interact with those they normally wouldn’t even if it’s just to give them a high five.”
Erlanger hospital’s ICU waiting room was visited by Key Club members on Tuesday morning as the students brought breakfast to those in waiting.
On Wednesday, members will create “Appreciation Packages” for cafeteria and maintenance staff letting these school employees know that they are valued and appreciated.
Key Club members will host a card-writing session on Thursday to send care and concern to people in difficult personal situations around the city.
Friday closes the week out with T-shirt Day, where the students are allowed to “dress down” and wear their Key Club T-shirts modeling to others that they are not only at Boyd-Buchanan for an education, but also to serve.
