PARENT INVOLVEMENT & 4-Her ATTENDANCE
Our club is governed by the Nokesville 4-H Club Constitution and Bylaws, adopted by the membership. Please read if you plan to become a member of our 4-H club.
No "drop-offs" please. It is important that the parent(s) come to the meetings, so they can be a part of the child's learning process and enjoy some time with their child(ren) in the activities. Other important information is also discussed at the meeting separate from the kids program time.
To join, all members must be enrolled at 4honline.com.
The 4-H Age: Determined by age on September 30th of the 4-H year. The 4-H year is Oct. 1 - Sept. 30.
Cloverbuds are kids ages 5-8 (generally those ages through 2nd grade). They are expected to come to the meetings, cloverbud field trips and county events.
Project Ages are kids from 9-19 (generally 3rd graders and up). These kids are expected to attend all meetings and as many county 4-H programs as possible, plus participate in the County Fundraiser. It is highly encouraged that 4-H members declare at least one project and keep record books on their project. District and State level 4-H events are also offered and are very rewarding!
Parent Involvement: It is a requirement, stated in our By-Laws and Constitution, that every parent volunteer in some capacity within our own 4-H club, as well as at a minimum of one county event, annually. Volunteering helps you become more aware of future opportunities for your child as they grow through the 4-H program.
County Events are: Share the Fun Talent Show, Presentation Day, Leader Kick Off, Recognition Night, Fair Camp, Children's Barn, Officer Training, District Contests, Fashion Revue, State Capitol Day, State Contests, 4-H Congress, and more.
Communication: You can stay in touch by checking your email as you have listed in www.4honline.com. We send club emails through MailChimp so be sure those do not go in your SPAM. In addition, the County will send you an email with a weekly 4-H newsletter of additional programs and registration links for events. Follow our closed Facebook group for notifications as well.
