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.
At Cypress Elementary, we are building a school garden. School gardens are a wonderful way to use the schoolyard as a classroom, reconnect students with the natural world and the true source of their food, and teach them valuable gardening and agriculture concepts and skills that integrate with several subjects, such as math, science, art, health and physical education, and social studies, as well as several educational goals, including personal and social responsibility.
Spanish Club at Cypress Elementary provides a variety of exciting and challenging experiences for students of all grades. Students have the opportunity to choose from different categories like: Declamation, dance, acting, project, poster, and new media. All these categories reflect the culture of the Spanish Speaking Countries.
Our school host The World Languages Academic Competition. This competition promotes standards of excellence. Through the different categories of academic competition, students demonstrate knowledge of the language and culture they are learning (Spanish).
Students that participate will receive medals:
1st Place - Gold
2nd Place - Silver
3rd Place - Bronze
The Cypress Yearbook Club is an important part of designing the Cypress Elementary School Yearbook. They help to select the cover, take pictures to include on yearbook pages, and assist the design of yearbook pages in 1-hour after-school work sessions using online computer software. They do not need any prior knowledge of design software for these sessions... just a positive attitude and a lot of creativity!
