Clubs K-4

Art Club
Contact: Jackie Farina farina@avesnj.org
The Art Club is a working studio where students learn through authentic art making. Control shifts from teacher to learner as students explore ideas and interests in the art media of their choice.  The art studio is a space where young artist can harness their creativity and thrive. The club allows students of any ability level to direct their own artistic expression.  Students who are interested in what they are creating will be students who are invested in their own learning.

Garden Club (PTC Club) 
Contact: Karyl Palmer (Rutgers Master Gardener) galashiels@verizon.net
The Garden Club is open to third and fourth grade students.  They meet once a week during the fall and then again in the spring.  Each year, the club members focus on a garden-related theme.  The group has studied wildlife gardening, garden related literature, insects and plant diseases.  Through lecture and hands-on activities, the goal of the meetings is to acquire knowledge and understanding that the students can then use when and as it relates to their lives. Students learn to respect nature, to listen, to follow directions, to problem-solve, to work independently, and to work together.

Journalism Club (PTC club)

The journalism club publishes the school newspaper written by the 3rd and 4th grade students. The students along with volunteers decide on topics to publish in the newspaper. These topics include functions and activities taking place in school, national and local news, and areas of student interest. The newspaper is published twice a year: January and June.
