SMART COOKIE CLUB

Mrs. Renz's Mastery Club - Redmond, Oregon

 
                 The Smart Cookie Club is a classroom program for students who want to go above and beyond!  Students will need to start a notebook at home just for the Smart Cookie Club. Answer each challenge by researching using any source. (The easiest way is to use the links provided.) Write the information down in your notebook. A parent must sign the page once you have completed a challenge. Be sure to label the challenge, challenge number, and challenge title.  If listing items, please list vertically so it can be easily read.  Bring your notebook to school, put it in the Smart Cookie Club basket on Monday morning.  Once you participate you will get your name on the Smart Cookie Board.  Students can be a 1 cookie member all the up to an 86 cookie member.   The top Smart Cookie with the most challenges completed will go in the Smart Cookie Club Hall of Fame and hold that title until Mrs. Christensen retires! Congratulations to Eshan for being our very first top Smart Cookie!

Please let me know if you are having any difficulty with any of the links.
