Club Adolphus


Welcome to Club Adolphus, your resource for the clubs that are available to Adolphus students.


Art Club

​Art Club allows students to try new techniques that are more challenging that what they experience in Art class.  Art Club is available to 4th and 5th grade students.  They are required to submit an application for Art Club, because space is limited to 22 students per grade level.  Both grade levels have separate Art Club sessions.  4th grade starts the year off, and 5th grade ends before Christmas Break.  Art Club lasts 5-6 weeks per session and is usually on a Tuesday or Thursday after school.


Bulldog Buddies

Bulldog Buddies is a program that encourages positive social interactions and social relationships to develop between students with and without disabilities. Bulldog Buddies allows for students to work together to have fun, grow as individuals, and build transformative friendships. There is an application process as well as a teacher recommendation form that must be completed. The amount of special needs students in the program, will determine how many applicants are chosen for that year.

Fitness Club

Attention 3rd Graders!  Come join us for Fun-filled Fitness Thursdays. Coach Hedin will provide fun activities and review healthy habits for students from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. We will begin on Feb. 3rd through March 3rd every Thursday afternoon. Funds raised will be placed in the P.E. Activity Fund used to buy P.E. equipment and field day supplies. Thank you for your support.


Girls on the Run

Girls on the Run is our program for girls in 3rd-5th grade that encourages girls to recognize their individual strengths and celebrate connections with others. Each season, girls gain a better understanding of who they are and what's important to them, the value of teamwork and healthy relationships, and how they can have a positive impact on the world. Girls also make a meaningful contribution to their community through a team-organized Community Impact Project. Physical activity is woven into the program to inspire an appreciation for fitness and healthy habits and teach life skills including treating others with care, practicing gratitude and managing emotions. Each season culminates with a Girls on the Run 5K event. This celebratory, non-competitive event provides girls with a sense of accomplishment and instills the value of goal setting at a young age.
 
At Adolphus we have a Fall and Spring Session.

Fall Seession Practice begins on September 17 through December 6.  Practice is every Tuesday and Thursday until 4:15 p.m.  There will not be any practice on November 1 or Thanksgiving Week.


Percussion 101

Percussion 101 is a weekly, extra-curricular, music club where students develop their music skills through playing percussion instruments.  They spend time each week playing multicultural drumming games, as well as developing a variety of xylophone and hand drum techniques.  Students have opportunities to improvise, compose and arrange their own music.  The six-week Percussion 101 session ends with a school performance and/or musical service event.  Percussion 101 is provided by outside music teacher, Malory Waldo.   All Percussion information, registration, cost details and dates can be found on her website:  www.waldomusic.com

RAK (Random Acts of Kindness)

Random Acts of Kindness/RAK, is a large group of students and teachers working together to make our days brighter.  Students find ways to spread joy and kindness.  This group of selected students range from K-5th grade.  They represent our school and should always be a friend to play with or sit with. The meetings are held the last Thursday of each month.  Meetings are after school until 3:30 pm.  “Kind is the New Cool” shirts can be worn at school, preferably Thursdays.  We are excited to see what is in store for our RAK club this year!

Robotics

Robotics is offered to students in fourth and fifth grade.  Students are selected based on an application and lotto process. A total of twenty students are selected.

In Robotics we form a First Lego League team that research a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc., and are challenged to develop a solution. We design, build, and program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology, then compete on a table-top playing field.

It all adds up to tons of fun while they learn to apply science, technology, engineering, and math concepts (STEM), plus a big dose of imagination, to solve a problem. Along their discovery journey, they develop critical thinking and team-building skills, basic STEM applications, and even presentation skills, as they must present their solutions with a dash of creativity to judges.


Student Council

Student Council Is a group of students in 3rd-5th grade who are elected by their peers to address issues of concern and organize student events and activities. We participate in various school activities and fundraisers, such as: Smencil sales, a Food Drive, a Holiday Toy Drive, and a Pet Drive.

The Student Council will meet in Mrs. Smyers Room - E1.  Meetings will end promptly at 3:30 p.m.  Meetings will be held on:
