Team tournaments where students solve challenges based on three essential skills: Teamwork, Creativity, and Problem Solving. This program provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students of all ages and fosters original and divergent thinking by working in teams. Participants learn teamwork, the appreciation of understanding others, and that a group is a more powerful thinking force than an individual- Grades 3-5. In March the students present their solutions at a regional tournament. (Meetings are outside of school)

Gaming Club- Games, such as card, board, drawing, and more, are a perfect way to get kids to come together, have fun, be competitive, but also work on their social skills and problem-solving skills.
Students are more frequently not playing face-to-face with their peers and it is my hope that relationships can grow, confidence can be built, and fun and learning can be had through the Gaming Club.
The Athletic Club -This after school club focuses on developing life skills and lessons focusing on a variety of character traits, including leadership and cooperation. The club also addresses the importance of healthy living through athletic games while stressing the importance of exercise.
Makers Space Class- Makerspace provide hands-on, creative ways to encourage students to design, experiment, build and invent as they deeply engage in science, engineering and tinkering! With parent volunteers we can offer this in the future.
