Is your student a "gamer" ? This is the club for them! Students will work in pairs to design arcade-type games. The game engineers will think through game design, strategies for success, rules, and prize systems. They will will run their games at their school or for your family game night! We will meet for four eight sessions.
The LE-TV Broadcast Crew is in charge of delivering the morning announcements by reading the script and working the broadcasting equipment. The LE-TV Crew is currently filled with 5th grade students who demonstrate positive character traits, especially responsibility, trustworthiness, and respect.

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.

Calling all Pokémon fans! We will be able to do activities, so everyone who participates can have a great experience. Our Pokémon Club does not feature any kind of formal competitions, so everyone is able to just show up and enjoy the world of Pokémon! Great opportunity to gather around a hobby and build friendships!
EVERY OTHER TUESDAY SCIENCE LAB
Solar cars is an afterschool science program for fourth and fifth grade students. They are provided a solar panel, gear box, and axle rods but the rest of the car design is up to them. In addition to learning about teamwork, students are also developing their engineering skills through the design and testing process.
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, walk, (or skip!) one lap at a time, one day at a time, and before they know it they’ve gone farther than they ever dreamed.

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.
TWICE A MONTH/GYM
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.

EVERY OTHER Tuesday 3:30-4:30pm
Young Astronauts is an after-school science enrichment program geared towards fourth and fifth grade students. The topic is changing every year, and all lessons and activities focus on building student interest/understanding in the area of space science. The program begins in October and goes through February, finishing with a special field trip for our fifth grade students in the program.
Here at Lieck, our meetings are held every other Tuesday from 3:30 to 4:30 on the stage. Our sponsors for this year is a great group of fifth grade teachers: Ms. Rowe, Mrs. Casas, and Mrs. Benavides. Many interesting adventures and discoveries will be made with this year's focus on the International Spacestation.
