Elementary, middle, and high school students working at their group levels in a club
  • Clubs and organizations are a great way to help develop character and the skills that will benefit you in school, your career, and in life. Skills like commitment, leadership, effective communication, and being able to work successfully in a group all come from participating in a club or organization. Joining a club is a great way to make friends, develop leadership skills, and boost your college resumé.

  • Student Council

    Student Council members are the voice of our student-body!  The purpose of Student Council is to foster the growth of student leadership skills by making an impact on our community through student lead service projects and school activities.

    Two students are elected, by their peers, in each of the third, fourth and fifth grade classes to represent their class. Each of the students elected have to fill out an application to participate in Student Council. Fourth and fifth grade students have the opportunity to campaign for the officer positions on Student Council. The positions are- President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary.

  • Safety Patrols

    Safety Patrols are students that exhibit the eight essential core character traits: citizenship, cooperation, responsibility, kindness, respect, honesty, self-control and tolerance. Above all, safetry patrols are leaders of the school. A safety patrol’s job is to model safety rules for students, assist students in safe transitions throughout the building, and to assist staff members with arrival and dismissal procedures.

    Safety patrols must be in fifth grade. Patrols are selected at the end of 4th grade through an application process with a recommendation from a previous teacher and parent permission. Consideration is based on student interest, academic achievement, commitment, sense of responsibility, and attitude toward others.
