School clubs are a great way to develop new interests and to make new friends. Aviano Elementary provides extra-curricular activities after school. Students select these activities based on their interests. Several teachers are the sponsors and coordinate the programs with parents, students, and community volunteers. Aviano Elementary offers the following clubs, which generally run throughout the school year:
Students in grades 1-5 are able to participate in the Baton Twirling Club. Baton twirling gives students an opportunity to develop eye hand coordination, directionality, poise, short and long term memory, build group dynamics, leadership, and friendship. Each student is provided individual and group instruction. They learn marching techniques, routines and have opportunity to create their own small group presentation. The club meets on Mondays 2:45-4:00pm at the AES gym.
The Aviano Elementary Chorus is an after school program that meets weekly on Tuesdays from 2:40-3:30pm in the Music Room. The Chorus normally lasts from 10-16 weeks. Enrollment is limited to the first 50 students who sign up. There are no auditions or academic requirements.
The purposes of the chorus are to learn and perfect music with the goal of presenting a choral concert for the school and parents, to learn to be better musicians and music readers and to have fun! Our music consists of folk songs, spirituals, Broadway songs and songs from movies and television. Proper choral singing technique is emphasized. We also play fun games, when time permits.
Students in grades 1-3 can join the Primary Music Club. The purpose of the club is for students to learn a variety of songs and put on a performance at the end of the club. The club meets on Thursday after school from 2:30 - 4:00pm in the music room.
The "Cooking-Up' Stories club was an after school group of "little chefs" that meet from September through April to interact with literature through cooking experiences. The cooking club meets on Fridays from 2:30-4:15 in room E77. The club provides an opportunity for students to respond to learning through culinary arts. Each week students listen to a story and then use a recipe to take an active role in the process of following a recipe and cooking food related to the literature. Students are engaged in activities that included following directions, simple arithmetic, sensory awareness, vocabulary enrichment, concept development, cause/effect relationships, and cooperation. Students answer open ended questions throughout each session, encouraging problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Educational areas such as, reading, fractions, counting, sorting, chemistry, science, nature, social studies, geography, health and nutrition were woven into cooking activities. The focus of the recipes is healthy cooking using fresh ingredients.
Computer Club is open to all 4th graders who have an interest in computers, enjoy working with others, and are looking for a fun activity. In the Computer Club the students learn about some of the computer software that we have available at AES. The Computer Club provides an opportunity for 4th graders to learn advanced features on some software programs such as Word. The students also learn how to use several software programs such as Power Point, Image Blender, Publisher, and Print Shop. The club meets on Mondays in lab upstairs from 2:30-4:00pm in the 2nd floor computer lab.
The Deployment Club is for all students who have a family member who will be, is, or has been deployed this school year. This probably means you! We play games, make things, do special projects, read books, talk about things, have guest speakers, and take a neat field trip to the flight line. Mainly, you get to visit with people just like you ~ people who are missing someone special. The Deployment Club meets on Fridays during lunch recess for students in grades 1-5. The Kindergarten Deployment Club meets during lunch recess at the AYP.
The Homework Club meets every Monday and Wednesdays from 2:30-3:45pm in Room E40. If Monday is a holiday, the club will only meet on Wednesdays during that week. If you are in first through third grades and you need some extra help with your homework, join the club. The club has high school students, adult volunteers, and a teacher to help you get all of your assignments done. The Homework Club will help your grades improve!
The Aviano Elementary School Student Council provides leadership roles to the 3rd, 4th and 5th graders who have been elected to represent their classrooms. Weekly meetings are held to discuss school-wide activities. The class reps bring up proposals from their classrooms to promote student driven positive changes in the school. They present morning announcements, so that all students can be informed about what is happening around the school. They run the student store and the pencil machine in order to raise money for school needs. They determine how the funds that they earn from these activities are to be used. They also give tours to new students and visitors. They organize and sponsor school-wide events such as the Carnevale Celebration and the school spelling bee. They continually discuss how to make Aviano Elementary School a safe and fun learning environment. The Student Council meets every Wednesday during lunch recess.
