After School on Thursdays for 5th grade students
Tomorrow’s innovators practice imaginative thinking and teamwork. Guided by adult Coaches, FIRST LEGO League teams research a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc., and are challenged to develop a solution. They also must design, build, program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology, then compete on a table-top playing field.
It all adds up to tons of fun while they learn to apply science, technology, engineering, and math concepts (STEM), plus a big dose of imagination, to solve a problem. Along their discovery journey, they develop critical thinking and team-building skills, basic STEM applications, and even presentation skills, as they must present their solutions with a dash of creativity to judges. They also practice the Program’s signature Core Values.
Lieck Strings is an ensemble of 5th grade beginning violin students, directed by Music Specialist Shannon Parramore. We meet Tues/Thurs mornings before school from September through May. Performances are held several times throughout the year. We perform concerts for the student body at Lieck and at PTA events, as well as at combined concerts with the Bernal MS Orchestra.

Marathon Kids works for any kid, at any fitness level. Kids set their goals and track their progress on a journey to complete four marathons, or 104.8 miles, over the course of the running club season. They run, or walk, a lap at a time, at a day at a time, and before they know it they’ve gone farther than they ever dreamed.
They learn how to fuel their bodies so they can run faster, better, longer. And for a little extra motivation, they earn fun Nike rewards at milestones along the way. They have a network of dedicated adults showing them how it’s done, and most importantly, motivated and inspiring Coaches, Coach Zdeb and Mrs. Trevino, supporting them every step of the way.
Before and After School
Safety patrols is a 5th grade leadership role in which students assist staff with safety around the school. They ensure students safety both before and after school during drop off and pick up.

STEAM team fun! This club will have 8 sessions. We will engineer, design, and create Rube Goldberg machines. Each machine has a goal and parameters (i.e. pop a balloon in 5 steps). Your scholar will use a combination of simple machines: pulley, wheel and axle, lever, inclined plane. Through the process each inventor will have the opportunity to share or present their work with their peers or campus/parent community.

Twirl club is an after school Baton Twirling program for students to grow and learn the beauty of Baton Twirling. They are provided with a Baton and foundational skills to create different routines. In doing Baton Twirling students develop spatial awareness (left, right, up, down, front, back), fine motor skills (which help them use pencils, scissors and keyboards), as well was hand-eye coordination. Students also develop strength, flexibility and stamina, as well as poise and a positive image of self, by participating in the sport of baton twirling. Students work individually but also as a team while learning various routines to music. Students have the opportunity to perform during the year to showcase all that they have learned.

Young Astronauts is an after-school science enrichment program geared towards fourth and fifth grade students. This year our focus is on astronauts at work! We will complete 8 missions with similarities to the work life of an astronaut. This will include research, designing patches and space suits, space walk challenges, details into their training schedules and life on the space station, and an “eggstronaut” parachute landing.
All lessons and activities are focused on building student interest and understanding in the area of space science. The program begins in December and goes through February, finishing with a special after school field trip for our fifth grade students in the program.
