V.I.P. Club







Welcome to the Very Intelligent Pupil (V.I.P.) Club!

This club is designed for students who want to go “above and beyond” normal classroom expectations! To get started, choose any question below. You do not have to research questions in any particular order. You may find your answers using reference books or the following web sites. Your work may be done before and after school, during school breaks, or at home. When you feel you have mastered a question’s content, come see me before school, at recess time, or after school to tell or show me your answers, depending on the question. Answers must be memorized.

Each question answered correctly and in full earns one star. Once a student earns 16 stars, he/she becomes a member of the V.I.P. Club Hall of Fame. When students become members of the Hall of Fame, they will get their name placed on the V.I.P. Club board and will receive a special certificate at the end of the year!

Lifelong learning is our goal! Have fun and good luck!
