Cardboard Arcade is an after-school science enrichment program for 2nd grade students. Students will build engineering skills as they work in teams or individually to design, test, redesign, retest, and eventually create a working arcade-type game. Students will consider game design, rules for playing, and prior science knowledge when designing their arcade games.
We have gotten a new group of kiddos every 9 weeks. The first two 9 weeks were 5th graders. Now we have called upon 4th graders to help for third and fourth nine weeks. Schedule is by the Library. We require parents to sign permission slips. The kids do duty at 7:10 am, and then at the end of the day at 2:50.
STEAM Team is a club to encourage 3rd grade students to use their creativity to design a Rube Goldberg machine.
Focuses on "Engaging Girls in Engineering" by teaching the Engineering Design Process, providing STEM challenges, and allowing students to act as engineers.
Student Council is an organization that promotes citizenship, leadership, scholarship and school spirit as it fosters the development of future leaders. Participants learn lifelong skills such as presentation, project design, reading, writing, speaking, and listening. It also supports service learning as projects are planned to benefit the students, the teachers, and the community.
Student Council membership will be open to all students in grades 4 and 5. Students will vote for two representatives from each classroom, and those chosen will have the opportunity to run for an office including: president (5th grade only), vice president (4th or 5th), and secretary (4th or 5th). Because Student Council members and officers are leaders on the campus, they are the role models for other students; therefore, they must exhibit leadership characteristics such as: good attendance, good grades, responsibility following the school rules (such as turning in assignments on time) and good behavior.
Young Astronauts is an after-school science enrichment program for fourth and fifth grade students. The topic changes each year, and all lessons and activities focus on building student interest and understanding in the area of space science. The program culminates in February with our annual Stargazing event for fifth grade Young Astronauts.
