PTA Fall Clubs

There are multiple benefits why Cheatham Hill Elementary PTA support After School Programs for our students.

Here are just three of the benefits:

1) There is strong evidence that extracurricular activities increase self-esteem and positive social behaviors among children and adolescents.

2) After-school activities appear to improve school belonging, motivation, and academic achievement.  

3) Elementary school students appear to have greater social engagement benefits when they are highly engaged in after school programming than when they are less engaged.

All Terrific Scientific lessons are designed to help with the development of the following scientific process skills: observing, classifying, comparing, measuring, critical thinking, predicting, hypothesizing, sequencing and experimentation. 


A Steam Club, Terrific Scientific Robotek

Let’s Build a Robot!  The fantastic, real world benefits of making and programming robots.

Terrific Scientific Robotic Programs uses LEGO® bricks, KNEX, StarBots, Goldiblocks, etc that emphasize a mixture of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) and great tools that foster imaginative thinking.

Science is, by its nature, inquiry based. Inquiry is an approach to learning that utilizes discovery and scientific thinking processes to explore knowledge and learn skills. In order to achieve this, facilitators of inquiry based learning must create an environment rich with experiences that allow learners to act on their own curiosity. Youth need experiences that will stimulate their thinking and provoke questions (inquiry). Such experiences will help develop critical thinking abilities. This is what happens in our programs as robots are built!

We are excited to be back for another great year at Cheatham Hill Elementary School.

Description:  

The jungle is jumpin’ with a jazzy beat in Disney’s The Jungle Book KIDS. Specially adapted from the classic Disney animated film, Disney’s The Jungle Book KIDS features a host of colorful characters and your favorite songs from the movie.

Banished by the ferocious tiger, Shere Khan, a human boy named Mowgli and his panther friend, Bagheera, are on the run in the deepest parts of the jungle. On their journey, the two meet a sinister snake named Kaa, a herd of elephants and a giant bear named Baloo, who teaches them the swingin’ musical rhythms of the jungle. After surviving a dangerous encounter with a band of monkeys led by King Louie, Mowgli and Bagheera are forced to run for their lives. When Shere Khan returns, our heroes must rally their fellow animals into battle and restore peace throughout the jungle.

We realize that parents want their children to have a memorable, educational, and enriching experience in their after school program. Some parents don’t want their children to be saddled with additional responsibilities while others want to see their children shine on stage. We can accommodate both. Please let us know in the registration form what level of commitment you are willing to accept for your child’s involvement in this production. The description of each level is listed below:

Drama Club- ($50 per month). Grades K-5. Students will participate in the show, but not be given any lines to memorize. This is a fun, after-school activity that shouldn’t require any pressure. Perfect for grades K-2! Drama Club Meets on Mondays 2:30 PM – 3:30 PM. First class is August 26th. Please read this important information if your child is in Kindergarten or First Grade.

Rising Star- ($65 per month). Grades 2-5. Students will participate in the show, and might be given a role that has lines that will need to be memorized. Parents will be expected to help their children learn their lines immediately. Perfect for kids who are new to theater, but want a challenge. Rising Stars meet on Mondays from 2:30 PM – 4:30 PM. First class is August 26th.

Super Star- ($75 per month) Grades 3-5. Students will participate in the show, and might be given main character roles that have many lines and songs. Parents will be expected to help their children learn their lines immediately, and commit to making sure the students remember their lines and songs until the performance. This is for our advanced students with experience on stage. Super Stars meet on Mondays and Wednesdays 2:30 PM – 4:30 PM. First class is August 26th.

Please review our Student Behavior Policies.

WHAT IS FCA?

Fellowship of Christian Athletes, F.C.A, encourages students to grow in their faith through monthly campus meetings. Each month students can participate in campus meetings where they read devotionals, sing songs, and listen to various motivational speakers discuss a scripture based topic.

The campus meetings are led by fifth grade students who are selected through application and by teacher recommendation. These student leaders will be required to attend additional weekly meetings(every Tuesday after school) that are facilitated by Mrs. Rigsby, Mrs. Bishop, and Mrs. George who serve as the club teacher leaders for Cheatham Hill.
