Star Spangled Scholars - gaining momentum

Founded and created in late 2013, Star Spangled Scholars is on a roll. We began humbly, supported by a generous grant from Daniels Fund and in-kind support from Arvada's Country Buffet. We are committed to offering this interactive, hands on history program to kids and families free of charge. Our mission is to build "heart" knowledge of what it took to found our great country, to settle the wild American West - and in doing so, building a sense of "Americanism" in our kids that is rooted in the appreciation of our founders' determination, resourcefulness and sacrifice. We've hosted two open houses, provided programming for fifth graders at Arvada K-8 and Hackberry Hill Elementary, made presentations to the spring break camp kids at Buckley AFB, presented to a "Whiz Kids" group in Lakewood and provided special Father's Day programming for the Arvada VFW #4331 membership and their kids. We offered a special summer camp program for 150 kids at the Susan M. Duncan YMCA on June 30th. The "campers" made "jumping jack dolls" and "salt cellars" (aka, cootie catchers). Kids of all ages sang rousing versions of "Do your ears hang low . . . " and the Star Spangled Banner! Harvest Festival attendees are encouraged to visit the "Star Spangled Scholars Living History Camp" in the Kid Zone at McIlvoy Park. School and other kid/youth group presentations will commence for academic year 2014-15. Contact Linda Olson Ferguson to request a presentation!
