Our CH Bird Choir is a fun group of 4th and 5th grade students that sing together once per week. We give multiple performances throughout the year including singing at grade level concerts, a Winter Sing-A-Long, popular music at CH Best fest, collaborating with other schools for the All-City Choir Festival, and other fun performance events that come up throughout the year.
Crafting for a Cause is a group of 4th and 5th grade students who get together once a week to learn and produce crafts - including, but not limited to, sewing, beading, and crocheting. We make crafts and then sell them to our school community to raise funds for local charities. In previous years, we have raised over $800 that went back into the community. Come join us!
Drama Club Thespians learn acting skills through improvisational games, theater activities, and stage work. Third thru 5th Grade Drama Club students work together through peer collaboration and ensemble-building to gain public speaking skills, build confidence and think about characters and story structure. Drama Club sign up forms and expectations will be sent home in a yellow packet in late November 2018. The season runs February through June.
The Kindness Club is a student-founded club based on the idea of sharing kindness with everyone within our CH Bird community. The club meets Friday mornings to discuss ways to share the message of kindness and model kind behavior at school. Students will be kindness ambassadors throughout the year, seeking out those who need a friend, creating kindness campaigns and participating in a fundraising activity that will benefit a local charity. There are no limits to participation. We are open to all students K - 5. Keep kind in mind!
SOARing Stars meet once a week during morning recess. Students learn and build on leadership skills to support peers/younger students with encouraging appropriate behavior, strong communication skills, and problem solving. Our hope is that all Bird students will seek to understand and acknowledge each other's voice in a responsive manner leading to greater engagement, ownership, and honest feedback to empower positive change throughout the school community.
A group of twelve 5th grade students, elected by their peers, develop leadership skills by organizing and carrying out school activities. In addition to planning events that contribute to school spirit, they often help raise funds for school-wide activities, including food drives and Caps for the Cure, which raises money for the American Family Children's Hospital.
Tri4 Schools is an eight-week program open to 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders that helps students train to compete in a triathlon (swimming, biking, and running all in the same race). The group meets twice a week with practices dedicated to helping students improve their running, biking, and swimming skills.
