Arbor Creek Clubs and Activities
Battle of the Books Club
Fourth and fifth graders work in teams to read 20 specific books from a variety of different genres. Teams meet throughout the school year with their team manager to discuss what they have read. In March, teams “battle” to see which group knows the most information from the 20 titles – until we get down to the final award-winning team!
Fourth- and fifth-graders are welcome to join Fitness Club and make some fitness goals. They will create a fitness log to keep track of their progress and work on flexibility, core strength, balance, and cardio conditioning.
Math Wings practices on Tuesdays after school. Regional competitions are held at Arbor Creek and district-level competitions will be at Olathe North High School.
Students in fourth and fifth grade have the opportunity to participate in a positive choral experience that allows them to be an integral part of a performing group. They will build confidence, pride, and self-esteem.
3rd- 5th graders are invited to our new ACE Coding Club! We will meet on select Mondays and learn to code using Dash robots, Lego WeDo kits, and online resources. This club is open to the first 24 students who sign up. There will be one session per semester. Contact Mrs. Walker or Mrs. Mochel for more information about joining.
Leader In Me
Leader in Me provides our school with the vision and language to lead the school in a way that addresses all areas of development. As each child discovers and develops his or her unique gifts and talents, they are given opportunities to lead. As leaders, they become active, engaged partners in their own education and their self-confidence, responsibility, and initiative grows. The children quickly understand the benefits of different gifts and talents; they learn to listen to new ideas, work together to achieve results, and motivate one another to be the best.
As the school year unfolds, the children will be learning the language and meaning of the 7 Habits. By hearing the same language at home and at school, you send the children a strong message of what you believe is important and that we are all on the same team -- the team that wants to help succeed. When parents and schools support one another, the sky is the limit!
