Archery is available for our Fourth Grade students through a lottery
sign-up (10 girls/10 boys). Selected students will be notified in September. We will meet in the Elementary School Gym before school. National Archery in the Schools
Program (NASP) promotes student education and participation in the
lifelong sport of archery. It helps increase academic achievement by
increasing student participation in their school. NASP provides
opportunity for individual and group achievement and allows students to
excel based on individual effort and practice. NASP provides an equal
learning opportunity to all students by using standardized equipment,
training, and implementation. Students become a part of something, they
feel good about themselves, have improved self-esteem, and improved
confidence. More specific information will be given to students selected
in the lottery.
Art club offers a hands-on opportunity for students of all grade
levels to pursue creative interests outside of the typical art
classroom. Students explore a variety of two-dimensional as well as
three-dimensional media. Art club meets in grade level
groups immediately after school until 4:30 p.m. There will be two
sessions of art club for each grade level. Each session lasts 4 weeks.
If we have too many registrations, we will have a lottery for
available spots and those who don’t make it will be placed on a waiting
list. Any student who was on a waiting list last year, will have
priority this year. You will receive an e-mail notifying you of the
dates for your child’s session.
There is a $10.00 supply fee for art supplies. In order to register for art club, we must receive your fee. The
fee should be sent into school in an envelope with your child’s name
and homeroom teacher’s name. Cash or checks made out to IHES are
accepted. If your child is placed on a waiting list, your check or cash
will be returned to you. Contact Mrs. Tuznik with any questions:
Choir is a non-auditioned group whose focus is on singing and movement with performance opportunities.
Each grade level has a choir that students commit to for the entire
school year. Choirs have 2 evening performances throughout the school
year and 2-3 during school hours. Please check the time commitment
before signing up as attendance is mandatory for all rehearsals and
performances. Choirs meet weekly to prepare for performances.
If you sign your student up for choir, a letter of performance
information, rehearsals, concert dress, etc., will be sent by email.
Rehearsals are in the multi-purpose room and are directed by IHES vocal/choral music specialist, Alice Bohn.
Lastly, choir is based in email communication. Please be sure to
include your email on the registration form. If you have no email
service, please contact me personally at 272-4735 so we can set you up
for paper communication.
