We have a Primary Spell Bowl team for students in Grades 2 and 3 and an Intermediate Spell Bowl team for students in Grades 4 and 5. Each team is coached by building teachers and focuses on mastering grade appropriate spelling lists consisting of hundreds of words. Students are given a practice list, try-out, and are selected for the team based on their accuracy.
If chosen for the team, students can count on lots of extra time after school (both on-site and homework type practice) to practice in preparation for local and regional competitions. Our Spell Bowl teams are very competitive and the students really enjoy the camaraderie the experience provides and is a great introduction to academic teams.
The Math Bowl team is an activity for students in Grades 4 and 5. Our team is coached by building teachers and focuses on mastering grade appropriate math and problem solving skills. Students are encouraged to work a wide variety of problems in preparation for local and regional competitions.
As with Spell Bowl, the Math Bowl teams are a great introduction to the competitive academic team environment where students are pushed to study independently, outside of class time to achieve excellence in mathematics.

Our running club is available to students of all ages who are interested in training for The Annual Molly Dattilo 5k Run Walk and Elementary Races. Held each year in May, local volunteer coaches, parents, and teachers help train students to compete in either a mile dash or the 5K run. Our school is always well represented and this is a great way to get active with your friends for a great cause!
The Morning Helpers are 5th grade students who serve as a teacher assistant in the primary grades. These students are available to assist fellow students in Grades K through 2 to ensure their iPads are ready for the day, help them get unpacked and organized for the day, assist with snacks, or take lunch count. It is always encouraging to have a helping hand first thing in the morning!

These students are selected by their fellow students. There are traditional officer positions in place to begin the experience of serving on boards with formal processes.
The Kitchen Helpers are a group of student volunteers of all ages who choose to stay and help our cafeteria staff clean up following lunch instead of going to recess. They are a big help when it comes to taking out the trash, breaking down the boxes, or simply helping to tidy up! These students are great servant leaders!
