Three third-grade students from The Episcopal School of Dallas recently noticed an unmet need in their weekly Lower School life: a time and place for sports cards to be traded with classmates.
So they approached Chelle Wabrek, Head of Lower School, and Megan Barnes, the new Lower School Librarian, with the idea of a Sports Card Club that would meet once a week to evaluate and exchange sports cards they had collected. Armed with the assistance of Mrs. Wabrek and Ms. Barnes, the students worked hard over the course of two months in order to lay the groundwork for this club. The students themselves took charge in all aspects, including setting up club guidelines, writing the email notifying parents of the new club, and even introducing it to the entire third-grade class.
In addition to this being a time for students to trade cards with one another, anyone interested in sports cards at the Lower School now has the opportunity to learn more about valuing cards and using pricing guides, learning about sports statistics, producing sports cards, and more.
We are proud of these students for exemplifying leadership and taking the reins to bring this club to life!
