Accelerated Reader Program:
This program is designed primarily for 1st through 3rd graders. Students are encouraged to read AR books and afterwards take a comprehension test.

Student Council/Students Against Violence Everywhere (SAVE) Club:
This club was designed to give students the opportunity to speak out about concerns, give suggestions about changes and to demonstrate their leadership within the school building. Additionally, students in this club will promote and teach others how to solve problems in non-violent ways. Since the focus of this group is leadership, membership is limited to only fifth and sixth grade students.
*Most clubs were originally designed by the Student Council and have been limited to 5 th & 6 th graders.
This is a theatrical club which practices and prepares for a major drama production in late May/early June.
This after school club was designed to give students the opportunity to complete schoolwork between 2:15-3:00 pm. Students are at times encouraged to participate in this club by their teachers. Room is limited in this club so it is important for parents to contact the school if they are interested in having their child stay after school to complete homework.
