Clubs & Activities

CH Bird offers several opportunities for students in Kindergarten through 5th grade to get involved.  

Choir

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.

Coding Club

Coding club is for 4th and 5th graders.  It's an introduction to coding using different games and websites.  We learn a lot and have a ton of fun!

Crafting for a Cause

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

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. 

Early Bird Sports Club

Early Bird Sports is an opportunity for 5th grade students to have an extra physical education class and interact as a grade level. The focus is - a healthy body produces a healthy mind for the rest of the school day.  All ability levels are welcome to attend.

Hmong Heritage Club

The Hmong Heritage Club promotes learning and speaking Hmong to all learners in grades kindergarten through 5th grade. Its purpose is to spread education of the Hmong culture. The club typically meets on Mondays and Tuesdays from 3:15-5pm.

Kindness Club

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

Running Club

Running club spends 10 weeks training for a 5k (3.1 miles) by gradually increasing the distance run each week to build kids' endurance and stamina. This club is for 4th and 5th graders and meets once a week. At the end of the eight weeks, all students participate in a 5k.

Safety Patrol

Safety Patrol is a voluntary group of 5th grade students helping and interacting with younger students in our school before and after recess by playing with them and getting them safely to and from their classrooms and the playground.  

SOARing Stars

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. 

 

Student Council

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. 

Tri-4 Kids

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.
