Guided Work Time
Description: An opportunity is created for students to spend additional time to be successful and complete missing work in various courses. Students will have the extra support needed to demonstrate achievement and reach their goals.
Description: Animal club gives students the chance to explore and learn about animals and their habitats. They will meet and care for a variety of vertebrates and invertebrates. Students will also research current events relating to animal issues around the world and become advocates for animal welfare.
Description: Future City is a competition-based project where students are able to imagine, design and build cities in the future. Students will be able to apply math and science, develop presentation skills, research engineering and career fields and develop collaboration skills. Using SimCity 4 students will begin to plan their future city.
FTC [FIRST Tech Challenge]*
Description: It’s way more than building robots. FIRST Tech Challenge teams (10+ members, grades 7-12) are challenged to design, build, program, and operate robots to play a floor game in an alliance format. Participants call it “the hardest fun you’ll ever have!” Guided by adult Coaches and Mentors, students develop STEM skills and practice engineering principles (like keeping an engineering notebook), while realizing the value of hard work, innovation, and sharing ideas. The robot kit is reusable from year-to-year and can be programmed using a variety of languages. Teams also must raise funds, design and market their team brand, and do community outreach for which they can win awards. Participants have access to tens of millions of dollars in college scholarships. Each season concludes with regional Championships and an exciting FIRSTChampionship.
Description: Students will be inspired as they participate in fun activities, integrating all abilities, levels and backgrounds within geometry and algebra. They will be empowered to reach their full potential in mathematics and find the supports to become lifelong math learners. They will collaborate in team-based learning, as they experience real-life problems with true meaning.
OAK [Outdoor Adventure Konnection]*
Description: Through OAK students will get the opportunity to answer the following questions: What should I carry on a hike?, What if I run out of water?, What can I eat from outside?, How do I cook with a fire?, How do I build a fire?, and How do I plan a hike? Throughout the semester, we will be planning, practicing, prepping and then going on adventures. We will practice survival skills like starting fires, cooking, and filtering water. We will plan hikes, biking opportunities, water sports using kayaks and ideally end the year with an overnight camping trip. Whether it is your first time doing something active outdoors or you have been in the woods all your life, this is a great way to develop healthy living and leadership skills and self-awareness.
Description: Production Club is an opportunity for students with an interest in drama to gather together and create. We will read published works from other writers for inspiration, but we are focused on students developing their own work for production. After creating a body of work, students will rehearse and refine their work. The Production Club will culminate in a final performance for the public.
Tabletop Gamers Club
Description: Students will gather every week and explore various tabletop games. No experience necessary.
Description: Students will focus on the fundamental, collaborative skills of basketball.
Description: TerraCycle is a highly-awarded, international upcycling and recycling company that collects difficult-to-recycle packaging and products and repurposes the material into affordable, innovative products. TerraCycle is widely considered the world’s leader in the collection and reuse of non-recyclable, post-consumer waste. TerraCycle works with more than 100 major brands in the U.S. and 22 countries overseas to collect used packaging and products that would otherwise be destined for landfills. It repurposes that waste into new, innovative materials and products that are available online and through major retailers.
We will be using TerraCycle to collect materials that we normally throw away in school. These lists will be changing as the different "brigades" of products come up throughout the year. To start us off we are recycling beverage containers, chip bags, juice pouches, granola/energy bar wrappers. In the TerraCycle club we will be sorting, packaging and shipping the products we collect. In addition, we will make decisions on community partners, collecting data on what we collect and advertising this cause.
Description: Running club is for anyone who wants to be active after school! In the beginning of the semester, we will be doing activities in the fitness center including Dance Dance Revolution, core workouts, and active stretching. Once the weather is a little warmer, we will begin running outside! We start out by taking shorter paths and increase each week. Our final activity as a club will be participating in the Diploma Dash, a 5K run/walk over graduation weekend. Even if you have never done a race before but want to be active, this club is for you!
DIY Fiber: Making and Altering Clothing, Quilts, and Art
Description: Maker space for all things fiber. Start by learning basic sewing (machine and hand) skills or using skills you already have to make original clothing, alter or embellish existing pieces. We will explore the work of artists working in fiber - fashion, quilts, sculpture - to design and create original work. With guest artists we will learn the basics of knitting, crocheting, embroidery, needle felting, and fabric dying. Driven by student interest! Open to Mosaic and IDEAS students. Beginners welcome! Bring your project ideas or learn to sew on that button.
Description: Chess is a wonderful activity, as it promotes thinking skills such as observing, problem solving, being strategic and planning ahead, seeing and forming patterns, as well as good sportsmanship.
Adobe Master Suite Class
Description: Students will learn about Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.
