After School Clubs
We have the following after school clubs funded by the 21st Century grant that meet at various times throughout the week:
Using drawing, painting, sculpting, and printmaking techniques, the students use their imagination to explore creative ways to make Art in an open studio setting. The students are working on still-life paintings, totem poles, abstract sculptures, landscape paintings on canvas, school murals and much more.
The Laurel Hill Robotics League is a program that provides hands-on technology experience while focusing on core values such as teamwork, empowerment, inspiration, community, and spirit. We implement those core beliefs into how students gain a foundation in science, social skills and foster the ability to problem solve. Through the program, students also continue to learn how to access and evaluate information and obtain a meaningful sense of how education improves the quality of one's life through meaningful experiences.The objective of the program is for students to discover a profound interest in the study of science, technology and engineering through the creation of robots and research of a specific science topic. The participants range from 3rd through 6th grade students.We introduce students to engineering challenges by building LEGO-based robots to complete tasks on a thematic playing surface. The FLL team is guided by a teacher-coach and students discover exciting career possibilities and, through the process, learn to make positive contributions to society. Students get the opportunity to design, build and program robots, apply science concepts, research challenges facing today's scientists, learn critical thinking, team-building and presentation skills, and have lots of fun by participating in tournaments and celebrations!
SoccerThe Laurel Hill Soccer Club meets after school twice a week every Fall and Spring. It is offered to boys and girls in grades 4 through 6. There are four core components of the Soccer Club: Physical activity, Nutrition, Mentorship and Family Engagement. In addition to improving each students' soccer skills, we hope to improve each students' self esteem, grades and test scores, social skills, behaviors, self-concept and their five components of fitness.
BOKS is a before school physical activity program designed to prepare children for a day of learning. Also, it's an important step in helping children gain an appreciation for the benefits of exercise and healthy choices that will last a lifetime. Classes are filled with team-oriented games and provide plenty of opportunity for play, since the program focuses on fun! BOKS runs twice a week before school for 12 weeks.
