Art Club

Art club is for 5th graders only. There is a simple drawing requirement that needs to be turned in before the student is allowed to attend. This will be posted outside the Art Room inNovember or December with instructions. Once turned in, Art Club Members will be announced. In the past, we have met on Thursdays after school from 3:45-5:00. This year we will meet every Thursday of the month through the week before Spring Break. However that date may change. We are hoping to take a field trip to the Frist Museum this year as well.

Just Say No

The “Just Say No” club is for students in 5th grade. Meetings are typically held on Thursday mornings, and are once a month in the library at 7:30am. During these meetings, we use activities and discussion to explore the topics of peer pressure, refusal skills, being assertive, and how the choices that you make now can have consequences in your life later. The Just Say No club sponsors Red Ribbon Week in October and the 5th grade Graduation Luau in May. We are also interested in having people from the community come speak at our meetings. If you have any suggestions or recommendations, please contact julie.culp@sumnerschools.org. The meeting schedule will be coming soon!
