Schuylerville Elementary School students have a broad range of interests, which are reflected by the number of clubs and organizations to which our pupils participate. Here's a sampling:

 

art club

Grade Levels: 3-5

Advisor: Mr. Shea

Grade 3 Meetings: alternate weeks on Wednesdays at 8 a.m. beginning October 9, 2013 (October 9 & 23, November 6 & 20, December 11, January 8 & 22, February 5 & 26, March 12 & 26, April 9 & 30 and May 14 & 28);

Grade 5 Meetings: Tuesdays at 8 a.m. beginning October 1, 2013

The goal of the Elementary School Art Club is to help interested students have the opportunity to explore the varying techniques and media used in visual art. Students work individually and in groups to develop artistic skills and bring art to the community.

 


 

band (beginning)

Grade Levels: 4, 5 or 6

Advisor: Miss Young

Meetings: TBA

Beginning Band students attend a weekly lesson to learn various skills needed to play an instrument and to participate in a performing group. Performance opportunities may arise throughout the year and Beginning Band students are eligible to participate upon achieving the necessary skills. 

 



band (advanced)

Grade Levels: 5-6

Advisor: Miss Young

Meetings: Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8 a.m.

The purpose of the Advanced Band is to provide opportunities for intermediate band students to expand their skills and talents. Students are admitted to the ensemble by teacher recommendation and are expected to practice regularly and attend a weekly instrumental music lesson to remain in band. Three concerts are scheduled yearly and students may perform at other events as they arise.

 



chess club

Grade Levels: 3-6

Advisor: Mrs. Pink

Meetings: 2013-14 meeting times TBA

Beginner players learn the basics of chess, while experienced players learn more advanced strategies. All students are given plenty of time to play the game.

 


 

chorus (beginning)

Grade Levels: 3-4

Advisor: Mr. Tucker

Meetings: 2013-14 times TBA

Beginning Chorus is a first-time chorus experience for students in grades three and four. In this large ensemble, we work on further developing basic music skills, such as note reading, ear training and pitch recognition. Chorus participants learn through fun singing activities and games, as well as real music literature appropriate for the age and development level. We meet once a week on Friday mornings at 8 a.m. from September to March culminating in a concert for the parents.

 



chorus (Grade 5)

Grade Level: 5

Advisor: Mr. Tucker

Meetings: Mondays (girls) or Wednesdays (boys) at 8 a.m. (September-May)

Advanced Chorus is open to all students in grade five. Students do not need to have Beginning Chorus experience before entering this group, although it is nice to have. This large ensemble focuses its learning on performing a larger repertoire of music of many styles. The skill level spirals from the end of the beginning level chorus, with greater emphasis on more difficult rhythms and two-part singing. It is recommended that students try the Advanced Chorus before choosing to continue in the Middle School choral program. Chorus meets from September through May at 8 a.m. on Mondays for girls and Wednesdays for boys. We perform two concerts each year.

 




ski club (elementary)

Grade Levels: 3-6

Advisor: Mr. Whalen & Mr. Jorgenson

Meetings: Thursdays after school for six weeks beginning the Thursday students return from the holiday break. Students leave school promptly at 3:20 p.m. and return to the school at 7:10 p.m. Parents are welcome to sign out their child at the mountain before 6:45 p.m.

Students receive small-group ski instruction based on their individual skiing ability. Participants get to ski at Willard Mountain with friends and make new friends at the same time.
