This month we would like to highlight the Motivate Our Minds Spelling Club, led by Michelle Kinsey of WIPB. MOM Spelling Club meets every Monday at Motivate Our Minds & involves students from each grade level. This club gives the children the opportunity to work on their spelling skills through learning activities. During our 3rd Motivate Our Minds Spelling Bee members of the Spelling Club participated against each other in teams to be named the Spelling Bee champion.
Motivate Our Minds would like to congratulate Tatianna Gomez-Lucero for being nominated for our April Student of the Month. Tatianna is currently a third grader at North View Elementary School. Tatianna was nominated by her teacher Mr.Miller for all her hardwork & positive attitude that she displays everyday at Motivate Our Minds. Here’s what Mr.Miller had to say about Tatianna and her work at Motivate Our Minds.
“Tatianna is a great student with a very positive attitude on life. She comes into the program everyday happy and eager to learn more. She has consistently had good grades and is actively involved in multiple clubs at Motivate our Minds. Tatianna is a good model for other students in the classroom, she has been coming to program for a long time and helps other students with routine. She does not need to be asked anything twice, and is a leader in her own learning.”
Congratulations Tatianna from everyone here at Motivate Our Minds!
Motivate Our Minds would like to congratulate Rayhanah Al-Abrahim for being the Motivate Our Minds March Student of the Month. Rayhanah is a currently a third grader at North View Elementary School here in Muncie. Rayhana was nominated by Mr.Miller for all her hard work here at Motivate Our Minds. Here’s what Mr. Miller had to say about Rayhanah.
Rayhanah has grown so much over the past year! She has a positive attitude towards learning in the classroom and is motivated to continue learning on her own. When Rayhanah first came to Motivate Our Minds she had just began to learn English, and now a year later she is fluent. From the moment she gets to the after-school program she is ready to start doing her homework as soon as possible so that she can participate in any activities and clubs that are going on. A few of these clubs that she is involved in are girl scouts, spelling and garden club. Her determination and hard work for her grades is impeccable, and Motivate Our Minds is happy to be a part of the process. —Mr.Miller
Congratulations Rayhannah from everyone here at Motivate Our Minds!

In addition to attending MOM, Cayden attends St.Mary’s Elementary School, he is currently in the fourth grade. While at St.Mary’s, Cayden has A's and B's and recently won an MLK Youth Citizenship Award from the Martin Luther King Dream Team.
Cayden was nominated by his teacher Ms .Aprill, who had this to say about him:
“In my after school class, Cayden is always eager to participate in clubs or other learning activities I have prepared. He is willing to help me or anyone else in class when I ask of him. He is respectful and caring and I expect big things of him someday--he's doing them already. “
When asking Cayden about his time here at MOM he spoke about the the chance to see & work with his friends who attend other schools. He also appreciates the valuable education he receives, as he said "They give us a high education."

This month we would like to highlight our Prelude at MOM club in conjunction with the Youth Symphony Orchestra of East Central Indiana.

Additional spots for lessons are available for your child!
The We Think It -- We Make It club was started in the spring of 2018 in collaboration with Ball State Architecture professors and students. The club is a chance for the older students at Motivate Our Minds to get experience designing and building things like bird houses or wooden toys. The club meets each Wednesday and has sometimes gone to the First Thursday events in downtown Muncie for an extra fun experience for the students. Not only do the students get a chance to use the Ball State Architecture wood shop at MadJax, they also get to show off the work they've been doing in the club and even have a chance to sell it. This December First Thursday event, the students set up tables near other vendors inside MadJax and sold wooden toys they had built raising money for Motivate Our Minds. They will be finishing up this semester by creating small decorative Christmas trees they can take home to their families.
