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.



Choir

The Adolphus Bulldog Chorale, directed by Ms. Emily Eads, brings 4th and 5th grade musicians together to perform choral music. This semester, the choir will perform the holiday musical, Toys! The Night They Come Alive!  Throughout the year, the choir travels to various parts of the community to share the gift of music. Enrollment for choir is closed for this 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.


Percussion 101

Percussion 101 is a weekly club where students develop musical skills through playing percussion instruments. They spend time playing drumming games from around the world, as well as developing a variety of hand drumming and xylophone techniques. Students get a chance to improvise, compose and arrange their own music, in addition to performing at school and community service events.


RAK (Random Acts of Kindness)

Random Acts of Kindness/RAK, is a large group of students and teachers working hard to make our days brighter.  Students will work together collaboratively to make our school and community a better place.  We held our first meeting Friday the 13th and brainstormed different ideas for the upcoming year.  We designed and created a “Adolphus is ‘BOO’lly Free!” poster with 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 3rd Thursday of each month (except March).  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.
