C.H.A.M.P.S.: This club is comprised of all 6th graders at Gilbert Elementary School. It instills leadership skills through several activities throughout the year. Students learn about taking care of their school, their peers, and their selves. All 6th grade teachers sponsor this club.
Student Council: Meetings will be held once a month on Wednesdays at 3:00 in the library. Attendance is very important.
Art Masterpiece Program: Directed by Librarian, Mrs. Morgan,
the Art Masterpiece Program is a wonderful way to introduce our students to some of the world's greatest artists and their work. It is also an exciting opportunity for parents to become involved in their child's classroom. Everyone looks to the day each month when the Art Masterpiece Mom/Dad come to teach the class about the painting of the month.
How does the program work?
Lunchtime Sports: Lunchtime Sports is a program offered to fourth, fifth and Sixth grade students. There is heavy emphasis placed on fun, sportsmanship, teamwork, and fair play. When disputes between teams arise, captains from each time get together and work on a solution that is fair for both teams (play stops until this occurs). The goal is for all students to have fun in a competitive but non-threatening environment.
Sports that are played throughout the school year include the following: Tetherball Tournament, Football, Kickball, Basketball, Soccer, Two-Ball, and Volleyball.
Tiger Town News: The Tiger Town News is shown twice per week school wide in conjunction with Principal announcements. Student newscasters broadcast school news, interesting facts of the day, celebrity Birthdays and upcoming events.
