The following clubs are by invitation only OR by Audition:

Trip Drama Team

The mission of the Trip Drama Team is to give fifth grade students the chance to enrich their Theatre Arts skills of acting by creating a full-length play performance at night for an audience of parents and the entire school. This year, the Drama Team will be performing an original comedy by Mrs. Grubbs entitled, "The Bully Avengers." I am working with the Trip Counselors to use this as an activity to earn our recognition from the Anti-Defamation League as a "No Place for Hate" school. We also plan to take a field trip to the Aurora Theater to see the play, "Jacki Robinson: A Game Apart" in February. This year we will also participate in our very first ES Theatre Arts "Dramarama- Drama Day" in March. More details to come.
