We are very fortunate to be able to offer so many learning opportunities and experiences for our students. In the 12 days leading up to Christmas break, we would like to take time to remember our blessings and countdown just some of the opportunities students, families, staff and the community have by being a part of CPS.
Day 7 ~ Tiger Club
On October 29, 2018 CPS launched a new program for 3rd through 8th grade students to provide academic enrichment for students after the regular school day has ended through homework help, interest clubs, special guests speakers, summer school, and field trips. It is called Tiger Club and it’s held from 3:30-5:15, Monday-Thursdays at the Cleveland Intermediate School and staffed by certified teachers. Tiger Club is made possible by a 21st Century Grant that our school district received in August of this year.
Each session starts with the students getting a snack and a few minutes of active play until they divide into their individual groups for study time. This time is designated for students to complete their daily homework, receive assistance if needed, and receive additional instruction in math and literacy content.
Once the study time concludes, students are allowed to participate in interest “clubs.” The clubs are designed to allow students to investigate areas of interest, to stir their curiosity, and provide fun learning experiences that challenge them academically and intellectually. So far, the students have participated in: Chess Club, Speed Cup-Stacking Club, Archery Club, Lego Club, Art Club, Board Games Club, Technology Club, and Flight Club. New club activities will be introduced about every 6 weeks.
In October, students created paper airplanes and competed in a flight competition following a presentation by Dr. Mallory Casebolt, Asst. Professor of Aviation, OSU. On another occasion, students were excited to interact with the high school FFA students when they shared their land projects.
We are thankful for the opportunity to serve our students and their families by providing this service. The Tiger Club is free for all students enrolled and we encourage any students interested to sign up. Registration forms can be picked up from the Cleveland Intermediate School’s office.
