Club Live

Club Live is a club for middle school students that meets on middle school campuses. This group of youth build their leadership skills while increasing their social network and implementing community change projects.

Club Live has programs on the campuses of Bidwell Junior High School, Biggs Middle School, Central Middle School, Chico Junior High School, Ishi Hills Middle School, Palermo Middle School, Sierra Junior High School, and Sycamore Middle School.

Bidwell Junior High School

Meeting Times: Thursdays at lunch in room 501 during both 7th & 8th grade lunches

EP Project: Bidwell Junior High School Club Live is implementing Merchant Committed, a program where officers and club members educate merchants in the community about underage drinking in Butte County. The CL officers went to Star Liquor Market and educated the merchant and remodeled the store by placing Merchant Committed stickers on boxes of alcohol. They plan on going to two more stores to educate more merchants and reduce youth access to alcohol.

School Climate Project: Bidwell Club Live is working hard to put together a school climate project. The 7th grade students wrote compliments to other students and placed them in the student lockers during lunch to increase campus spirit, confidence, and morale. The 7th graders also implemented a campus wide dance party at lunch with great games and music.

The 8th graders set up a booth at lunch where students could compliment different teachers and faculty members at lunch by writing compliments on pieces of paper. The Club Live members distributed them by putting them in the teacher’s box.

The 7th and 8th graders teamed up to deliver holiday grams during the Christmas season. The Club Live members distributed a gram with candy attached to it during class, and the CL members were able to provide every student on campus with a holiday gram.

Next, the 7th and 8th grade Club Live members are going to team up to write compliments on index cards and place them in student’s backpacks. They will continue implementing monthly school climate projects, with the goal to unify the school and make students feel more connected with one another.

Bidwell Club Live is run by August Moore and Jenny Castaldo. To learn more about CL on Bidwell’s campus, or to see how you can get involved, contact August Moore at aemoore@buttecounty.net.

Biggs Elementary School

Meeting Times: Thursdays at 11:30am Mr. Gates classroom, in Room 22

EP Project: Club Live Officers implemented Merchant Committed by visiting two local stores in Biggs and graded the store using the Merchant Committed Report Card as a guide to educate, and demonstrate how media and beverage companies target youth in alcohol advertisements, to the placement of alcoholic beverages. Then they went over the report card with the store owner/employee and explained the grade the store was given and why.

School Climate Project: Biggs Club Live members came up with the idea of a compliment campaign where each fellow middle school student would receive at least 1“Wolverine Compliment of the day” before the school year ended. “I’ve been clawing the walls all day, to give YOU a Wolverine Compliment of the day!”

Biggs CL is run by Cody Walsh. To learn more about CL on Biggs’s campus, or to see how you can get involved, contact Cody Walsh at CWalsh@buttecounty.net

Ishi Hills Middle School

Meeting Times: 7th Grade meets Thursdays in room D-1 during lunch, and 8th Grade meets Thursdays in room G-4 during lunch

EP Project: Ishi’s officers recently visited two local Oroville stores, the Circle K and Beacon,  and graded both using the Merchant Report Card to see if they were in compliance and if they were “youth-friendly” in their layout. It was a great experience and the next step will be re-visiting the stores to present the report card and provide Merchant Education to the store’s owners, managers, and employees. Stay tuned!

School Climate Project: Ishi held their first school climate project event on December 8th during lunch providing an opportunity for students to send positive messages to each other via “Holiday Grams”. The theme for that month was “Spread a little warmth” so Club Live Officers and Members also served hot chocolate to students! It was a huge success with over 200 grams being sent out to students before the holiday break!
