Young Men Of Character (YMOC)

Dear Parents,

Mr. Amorose, Mr. Nicholson, and Dr. Farngalo are offering an after school young men’s program this year. This program, Young Men of Character, will teach our young men in grades 3rd – 5th humility, responsibility, determination, integrity, initiative, courage / self-confidence, distinction, ambition, organization, obedience, honesty, and selflessness. These young men will also practice with public speaking, decision making and overall how to conduct themselves as young men. It is our desire to take some local Saturday trips to a college, jail and other areas of interest. The activities in this after school program will be kept age appropriate. This club is completely optional and open to 3rd – 5th grade boys.

The Young Men of Character Club meets on Tuesdays after school from 2:30-3:15pm. Following the club, boys must be picked up at 3:15pm at the front entrance.
