CLOVERLEAF CLUB 5th Grade  In-School (Public & SAIL)

Through a long-standing partnership with the Columbia County Board of Education, the Columbia County 4-H program is integrated monthly into every 5th-grade classroom; 95 classes total. These meetings are typically done in-person by one of our 4-H staff members or volunteers however, due to the current circumstances, we will be conducting our meetings this year through a new VIRTUAL format instead.

Each month (September - April) your child will have the opportunity to participate in a fun and engaging educational lesson focused on Georgia State Standards of Excellence enhancing classroom instruction. The best part is... these lessons are FREE and fully accessible to our Learn from Home students! If your child is in 5th grade at a public Columbia County elementary school or at SAIL Charter School, please ask his or her teacher for more details!
