Social Skills Clubs Kick Off

One of our School Improvement Plan goals for this year is to create clubs.  The staff worked together this summer to brainstorm ideas to improve our students experience and learning.  Research shows that there are many benefits to extracurricular activities.  They encourage good attendance, positive views, healthy ways of living and overall positive attitudes toward school and learning.  We kicked off 4 clubs this first 9 weeks: gardening, cooking, beading & Music.   Students will rotate through the 4 clubs, spending two weeks on each. In Beading students work on colors and eye hand dexterity.  In gardening, right now since it's so hot outside, students are working on the science of gardening - how bees spread pollen to help plants grow.  In cooking, students made a "healthy mouth" snack and learned how important it is to eat healthy - even when snacking.  Music club students are learning about all sorts of instruments and they got to try them out!  Here are some pics from our first week:
