Golden Moose Club

Golden Monkey Club

This is a club for students who are interested in achieving "above and beyond" the normal classroom expectations.  All you have to do is learn all about the topic, and then tell your answer to Miss Murphy. You can become a 1 star member, all the way up to an 84 challenge member!   Learning never ends - thank goodness! To become a member you must choose a topic from the list and learn about the topic on your own. You may use our library or the websites that are linked below.

I would personally like to thank Mrs. Renz who came up with the idea for my Club. Please visit her web site at:
