Welcome to the Rotary Passport Club of Pierce County

The Passport Club of Pierce County is a new type of Rotary club designed to be flexible, affordable and accessible. We seek to serve the community with like-minded leaders, create friendships, and make business connections. Unlike traditional Rotary Clubs that meet weekly, the Passport club provides opportunities each month to have a club meeting, to volunteer, to socialize with one another and other area Rotarians, and to learn about our local and global community. Join us!

Thank you to everyone that gave and participated in our on-line auction!
 
Your auction dollars went far for kids in our community! All proceeds from the ReLife Auction went towards items to renovate our 5th-7th grade classroom at the ReLife School in Puyallup, which serves students grades 2-12 from King, Pierce, and Thurston Counties.
 

A little about ReLife - A Regional Center of Excellence

ReLife School is a program of Puget Sound Educational Service District designed to address the academic and behavioral needs of students (Grades 2 - 12) with significant social, emotional and behavioral disabilities.  The program employs a strong focus on the individual academic growth of students. Through efforts to improve our students’ executive functioning, attention to detail and social interactions, we engage students in appropriate study skills and assignment/project completion, resulting in their movement toward increased successful classroom experiences. We seek to create a safe and structured environment for students to learn skills and strategies for coping with the stresses of daily life and to replace inappropriate behavior with socially adaptive behavior. We do this through a combination of in-class lessons, modeling and reinforcement, individual, group, and family therapy and through individualized interventions. Our goal is to transition each student from the program to the larger world, be it their neighborhood school, a job site, or post-secondary education, with the skills and knowledge needed to navigate that world successfully.

ReLife School Project: July 7th Classroom Makeover!
Our club is partnering with Coldwell Banker Bain, University Place Refuse & Recycling, University Place Lions Club, and PTA to renovate the ReLife School in Puyallup. We are making over a 5th - 7th grade classroom in the school on July 7th. We need volunteers to assemble and organize classroom furniture before the big reveal at 4 pm. Check out the ReLife School Renovations event page to register as a volunteer and review the information from the last club meeting! 
 
The Amazon wish list for our 5th - 7th grade ReLife School classroom is now available! Click on the link below to review items that were identified as needs by the classroom teachers. All items that are donated will be placed in storage and brought to the school the day of the makeover. 
 
 
This project provides multiple ways to be involved.  We will need people to help the day of with assembly and renovation of the room, we have the Amazon wish list for items that are needed in the classroom, and there will be a mini-pop-up auction that starts next week which all proceeds will go towards the costs for renovating our classroom. 
 
Remember, this is an 'Extreme Home Makeover Edition' style project, where most renovations happen on Reveal Day - July 7th! Channel your inner Speed Racer!
 
To sign up to volunteer for the July 7th classroom makeover, check out the event page here. 
 
If volunteering isn't an option, then come to the big Reveal Day at 4 pm and join the crowd as we cheer "MOVE THAT BUS!" for the big reveal!
 
Updates will be made as more information is available.  
Our club is partnering with Tacoma #8 to provide a fun-filled carnival day for kids at Camp Goodtimes, a week-long summer camp for children with cancer.
