Department of Defense Education Activity

Student Clubs and Organizations

All after school clubs and activities (i.e. jump rope, art, music, math, sports, etc.)will normally meet only on days that the school follows a full day schedule, NOT on early release days. There is no extra-curricular activity bus for students who participate in these activities. Parents whose child frequently rides a bus must make transportation and/or other arrangements for the student to be picked up from school following the activity. Notification of these activities will be sent to the parent along with the day and time of the activity. In addition, due to unforeseen training, meetings, or teacher absences, an activity may be canceled without advanced notice. The sponsoring teacher will endeavor to notify students and parents of the canceled activity if time permits. If the activity is canceled at the last minute, students will be notified through the school intercom system at the end of the instructional day.

Sponsors of clubs and extracurricular activities determine academic and behavioral (disciplinary) requirements that students must meet to participate in school sponsored extracurricular activities or to hold a leadership position in a curriculum-related club, team or student organization.

5th Grade Lunch Bunch Book Club

Students meet in small groups of 4-6 students to read and discuss a book of their choosing. The group meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the Live Oak Hub during lunch. Students are free to discuss any aspect of the book that we are reading. The teacher will guide the students to use higher level thinking and questioning skills through conversation and questioning.
