Power Hour typically begins in January. This is a 6 week club that meets after school for one day a week and is open to students in grades 3, 4 and 5. Power Hour is for all Miller School students who are interested in staying after school to work on their homework, schoolwork, projects, or other academic areas where they may be experiencing difficulty.
Math Club typically begins in January. This is a 5 week session that meets after school for one day a week and is open to students in grades 4 and 5. The club is designed to enhance critical thinking skills on higher order math concepts and offer our students enrichment activities that will encourage them to use a variety of math manipulatives and technology tools. Although this program is open to all students, those that enjoy math and are interested in its real world applications will benefit most from the program.
The Student Leadership Team is for fifth grade students who are interested in helping to encourage a school climate where students feel confident and safe, build school community, boost school spirit, create service learning opportunities, develop leadership skills, and have fun. Fifth grade students may apply in October, and two representatives are chosen from each homeroom to serve on the leadership team. The Leadership team meets twice a month after-school. Information and registration forms for these clubs will be posted on backpack express prior to their beginning in the fall.
