Early Learning Center
After School Sports
This program is designed for fourth and fifth grade students who would like to get involved in team sports, develop their skills, learn basic offensive and defensive strategy, in a competitive, but fun environment.
This club meets throughout the year to discuss the organization, articles, and pictures for the school's yearbook.
This is a club for boys and girls who are passionate about literature and love talking about books. This club is a time where students can read, listen, and share ideas about a book that they are reading twice a week.
Homework Club is designed to provide students with a quiet, structured environment to complete their homework. Teachers are available to provide assistance with work and answer questions. Students may join this club through the recommendation of their teacher. Homework club meets twice a week for forty-five minutes after school.
Fourth and fifth grade students have the option to join Honor Choir. Honor Choir one morning per week for 45 minutes. This music club is mandated by the School District. That means every Elementary School in Oswego District 308 is required to offer this club for at least one semester. Participants learn the mechanics of good singing technique, music reading skills, part-singing in harmony, and how to perform and blend with a musical ensemble. All District Honor Choirs participate each May, in a Combined Choir Music Festival. This event is always an exciting and memorable one! Also, choir members have the chance to keep a T-Shirt and a CD recording from the event. Other performances include Cultural Arts Night, as well as possible other concerts upon the director ’s discretion.
This nine-week club, although brief, has proven to be very beneficial to participants, because they have learned how to produce a pleasing musical sound on an elementary woodwind instrument, and they have applied music note-reading and rhythm-reading skills to a performance setting. They also, like Honor Choir, learn how to blend and balance their sound, and follow a conductor, in a musical ensemble. Upon the conclusion of our nine, weekly, 45 minute practice sessions, the Recorder Club presents a "Demonstration Concert" where they share with family and friends some of the musical processes and products they’ve mastered. Participants get to keep their instrument and book after the club ends, and are encouraged to continue practicing through the rest of the book on their own.
Fifth graders have the opportunity to volunteer to become a part of the safety patrol. These students are stationed throughout the building after school to help encourage students to follow the school rules when exiting the building.
