Science is everywhere and the application of science through Technology, Engineering and Math are key ingredients for helping children become more scientifically literate. STEM is where your child will get to explore techniques for applying math, the basics of technology, and the simplicity of the engineering design process. Come join us in STEM Enrichment where we get to use our knowledge to build bridges, create light circuits, design simple machines and paper roller coasters!
Students will be introduced to the rules of tournament play and be provided with varying strategies to strengthen their skills in preparation for participation with the Little Rock School District chess tournaments. Weekly attendance and practice outside of club time is essential for building these skills. Tournaments are all-day Saturday events (8:00-3:30) occurring at Parkview High School between October and April with a championship at the end of April or early May.
Students who are interested in creating an elementary newspaper and being a part of the morning news and announcements are encouraged to sign up for the School News enrichment. This enrichment will include the designing of a newspaper as well as interviewing and writing for the paper. Students will also be in charge of preparing daily morning announcements for the school.
4-H is a club where students learn by doing! Club members will complete projects based on their interests, like science, agriculture, food, nutrition, and engineering. We will be running community drives in the winter to benefit the less fortunate, as well as a spring "Trashless Lunch Challenge." While we will be showing students how to create and present their projects in class, students MUST be able to work on their own projects at home. There will also be a culminating event in May, when club members will be expected to show their completed projects at our annual 4-H Fair.
Join us as we put on festive winter and spring productions. There will be plenty of singing, acting, and lots of fun and laughter! Bright lights and stardom await! Meets both days each week.
Utilizing our local trails, the students will run with friends, set and accomplish goals, and take ownership of their running. If you are committed to running, getting in shape, and reaching goals…Running Club is for you. Student’s will also participate in the Little Rockers Marathon.
