ACDS 4-H club offers many opportunities to all members.  From trips, camps, competition, meeting new people, to opportunities to give back to your community/ school.  

ACDS 4-H is currently partnering with the Science Department to install a chicken coop on Campus.  

Dues are 25.00 per year and if you are interested please see Mrs. Thibodeaux or contact her at tthibodeaux@acdsonline.org.

4-H is a national youth development organization that empowers young people to reach their full potential.

Our 4-H Club is a dynamic non-formal education program that helps develop life skills in today’s youth and is available to students in grades 4th through 8th.

Head, Heart, Hands and Health are the 4-H’s which represent the four-fold training and development that members receive.

We encourage our members  to choose at least one project to complete during the year. Project themes include animal science, environmental education, energy & machines, health/foods/fitness, child development/family life, personal development, and outdoor skills/shooting sports.

Members are also encouraged to participate in various community service projects throughout the year. There are also a number of activities offered on parish and state levels, such as the fair, achievement day, and various contests and camps.

ACDS 4-H meetings are held monthly after school and are conducted by the student officers. Our current club consists of approximately 35 members and is growing stronger each year.

The ACDS 4-H club has been awarded 2nd place as “Outstanding 4-H Club” in Rapides Parish for the past three years.
