Northside Elementary School Turning Today's Learners into Tomorrow's Leaders

Clubs & Activities

Every child has his/her own learning style. By offering opportunities in a wide variety of areas, we know we can create interest in science, music, reading, and the arts. Check out our programs. We’re sure you’ll find something to open your child’s eyes to a bigger world!

Camp Invention

Science doesn’t get much more exciting than Camp Invention—a place where big ideas become the next big thing! At Camp Invention students get to

  • Take apart machines
  • Move and think quickly during fast-paced and high-energy games
  • Build and compete in your team’s freestyle racing cart
  • Prototype your own video game story

Look for information about this great opportunity at the end of the school year. This is an event you want your child to be involved with!

Geography Club

Are you interested in learning about other countries? Join us to learn fun geography facts such as:

  • Where is a particular country located?
  • What do the people look like?
  • How do they dress?
  • What do they eat?
  • What kind of house do they live in?
  • What kinds of games do the kids play?

After a busy seven days of research, students present their projects at the International Mall with display boards of the country, food tasting, and even dressing up to reflect the culture.

Science Club

Do you have a child that is interested in how things work, performing a scientific experiment, or who imagines a trip to the stars? Join us for six fun-filled days where he/she will explore the process of scientific investigation through predicting, building, testing, and drawing a conclusion.

D.A.R.E.

Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) is a police officer-led series of classroom lessons taught to our 5th grade students. The D.A.R.E. program is more than just drug prevention education; it teaches students good decision-making skills to help them avoid high-risk behavior to ensure they grow up healthy, safe and secure.

The D.A.R.E. decision-making model:

  • Define the problem
  • Assess your choices
  • Respond using the facts you have gathered
  • Evaluate your choice
