Activities/Clubs

Archery

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

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: 272-4693, marcia.tuznik@indianhillschools.org.

 


Choir

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.


Computer Club

Computer Club is an opportunity once a week for students to learn more about computers, software, and other technologies. Classes are held once a week for forty-five minutes.  New sessions begin in the fall and winter. Computer Club is being divided into two different sections.  One section will focus on special computer projects that do not fit into our school computer curriculum.  Minecraft will not be played in this section.  Projects may include 3D printing, movie making, geocaching, web page design, stop motion animation, game programming or other topics suggested by students.  The second section will focus on the one of a kind game known as Minecraft.

The Special Projects section meets after school.

The Minecraft section meets before school.

Meeting dates will be sent/emailed home after registration has taken place.  Registration for both fall and winter takes place during the fall.

Classes are open to students in grades 3, 4, or 5 and instruction is given by Mr. Richardson, the district data and research coordinator. The classes will be held in lab 117 in the elementary school.

Students are limited to participation in one computer club session per year in order to allow more students to participate.  If the clubs fill up, placement will be determined by lottery.


Kids Who Care

Kids Who Care is a service organization open to 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. We do various projects throughout the year to help out those in need in our local community and sometimes beyond.

Multiple groups will be formed based on enrollment numbers and a lottery system if necessary. Each group typically meets 4 times throughout the year (October through May) before school. Placement information and specific meeting dates will be sent home.


Science Club

Science Club is designed to emphasize the wonder and exhilaration of science through a collection of hands-on activities. There are clubs for each grade level, so there’s something new each year.  Some of our main topics of discovery include: the scientific method, cause and effect relationships, buoyancy, states of matter, graphing, friction, gravity, and density. Investigators will meet before school.  Please indicate whether Fall semester or Spring semester is your first preference. Science club is open to all students. Placement information and meeting dates will be sent to the parent provided email contacts so please type carefully in those fields. Science Club is taught by 5th grade teacher, John Sommer.
