Service on Campus/Student Council (SOC)

Sponsor: Ms. Vorhes, Ms. Stanush

 

Service On Campus (S.O.C.) gives 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade student council members a chance to help around school and in the community.  Students learn self-discipline, responsiblity, commitment, leadership, and the importance of volunteering.  At S.O.C. students assist with some of the work adults usually do at school.  It's a great combination of service work and fun, while serving your school in an important position.
In addition to helping out around school, Bulverde Creek student council members will continue to support PTA with sister school activities, run the school store, and participate in volunteer activities that support our community.

Orff Club is an auditioned performing group that focuses on the Orff-Schulwerk philosophy of music education. Auditions are held in May for incoming 4th & 5th graders at Bulverde Creek for the following fall.  There are a limited number of spots for this group as we are equipped with a limited number of instruments. Orff Club meets every Tuesday and Thursday morning from 7:10 - 7:40 AM in the music room. Music studied will follow the Orff-Schulwerk philosophy &  includes select pieces by Orff & Keetman, student compositions, and various Orff arrangements.  Instruments used include xylophones, metallophones, glockenspiels, various non-pitched percussion, voice, and creative movement. 

 

 

Cooking Club

Sponsor: Mrs. Montemayor, Mrs. Coley, Mrs. Carrol, Mrs. Corona, Mrs. Martinez, Ms. Costilla

 

Do you love cooking? Would you like to learn how to cook? Well if you said yes then we have a club for you! This year we will continue the Bulverde Creek Cooking Club for students in kindergarten, first and second grade. The students will participate in fun, cooperative activities that are literature based and are related to the seasons. These real world experiences will allow them to use skills such as: sequencing, measuring, turn-taking, and nutritional awareness.

 

 

Robotics

 

Club members will have a fantastic opportunity to work with the Lego Mindstorms NXT robotic kit.  They will plan, design, and build their own robots to perform different tasks.  They will be taught how to use the computer to design and write their own programs to fulfill different challenges. Membership in the program is extremely limited, due to the highly technical nature of the instruction and limited materials.  20 students (4th and 5th grade only) can apply.  Students must have an aptitude for science and mathematics, maintain excellent grades and behavior, commit to club meeting attendance with limited absences, and be excellent cooperative learners.
