Musical Theater Club
The Musical Theater Club focuses on developing students’ singing/acting/movement skills in a variety of musical theater performing styles and is designed to enhance artistic and creative talents. Students will learn to use their own personal voice type to sing different kinds of songs while analyzing lyrics and characters in order to better communicate a story through vocal and physical expression. Students will learn solo and ensemble dance scenes as a part of the overall design of the show. Through the expression of dance and movement, students will learn how to convey the ideas and themes of the story through movement. The students will learn the basics of musical theater history and storytelling through the club productions. Musical Theater Club takes place on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3:15 - 4:15 pm with Mr. Lawyer, Ms. Doelp, and Miss Sarnese.
An active, healthy club for students who like to run, jog, walk, and improve their physical fitness. Your club may also include health education components as you teach members the importance of injury prevention through warming up, stretching, cooling down, staying hydrated, healthy food choices, and healthy habits. Running club takes place every Monday from 3:15 - 4:15 pm.
Tutoring/Homework Club is available to students in grades 1 through 8. Students are grouped in age-appropriate sessions with staff members from MPCS. During the club, we focus on priority standards and prior year skills to ensure student understanding within the content. Grade 1-6 tutoring takes place every Monday from 3:15 - 4:15 pm and grades 7-8 take place every Tuesday from 3:15 - 4:15 pm.
In the Art Club, students are given the opportunity to explore their creative ideas and talents through projects that are an extension of the arts curriculum. Students participating in art club may choose to work more independently on a given project, allowing more time for the creative juices to flow! The art club takes place every Tuesday from 3:15 - 4:15 pm.
The STEAM Club is in full swing and students are having fun exploring science, technology, and engineering with Ms. Montanez and Mrs. Tucker. We have investigated aerodynamics through constructing, testing, and revising models of paper airplanes. Fourth through Sixth-grade students explored the basics of coding using Blu-Bots to make them go in a straight line, turn left or right, and complete a circle. Seventh and Eighth-grade students are developing their coding skills using the Sphero Bolt. We will use block coding to make the Bolt complete a geometric shape, such as a circle or a square. Students are working as engineers as they build using various Lego kits. We are hoping to have a STEAM Night in the Spring to showcase our newly acquired skills and projects we created during the semester.
