Culture Clubs have been a big hit in grades 3-5. Our students are embracing the opportunities to earn time to play games with their friends where they are encouraged to strategize, follow rules, collaborate, and be a team player, OR they can choose to visit Ms. Jones’s Art and Craft class where they can show off their creativity.
