Trailblazers of Today...Leaders of Tomorrow...

September 3-7, 2016



Third through fifth grade student leaders participated in their first club day for the 2016-2017 school year. Student leaders had the opportunity to chose and participate in various clubs. Theater Arts, Perplexing Puzzles, Robotics, Chess, Board Games, athletics, Karaoke, coding, Legos, and the Newspaper club were some of the club choices that were made available to the students. Students had the opportunity to synergize and sharpen their saw.
