    CLASS DESCRIPTIONS (In alphabetical order)

     

    Architecture in Action, Mr. Ian Crozier

    Do you ever wonder why and how building structure are made? Welcome to Architecture in Action! Students will have the opportunity to build 3-D architectural models and a better understanding of how the built environment affects their communities and neighborhoods. Students will also focus on the architecture that they are very familiar with…their school! Students will learn about school design and then choose a area or section of their school to redesign.

     

    Bridge Club, Ms. Anne Farmer and Mr. Bill Bumpas

    Once a week, students will meet to socialize, have fun, enjoy a snack, and learn the game of bridge! At the end of the session (once students have learned the game), the McClure Bridge Team will have an opportunity to compete in a tournament with several other SPS Middle Schools to see who can win the coveted NextGenBridge trophy to be shown off at their school. The game of bridge knows no geographic or socio-economic boundaries. There are no age or gender concerns. No physical or intellectual requirements. Any child can learn and enjoy the game of bridge!

     

    Cooking Around the World, Ms. Alice and Ms. Kat

    Each week we will tackle a new recipe and fundamental skills necessary to high quality home cooking. We will be cooking everything from basic sauces, scratch gnocchi, crepes, vegetarian chili and much more! By the end of this series, students will have the practical skills necessary to being cooking at home and will have new focus on making cooking accessible and affordable. Beyond cooking skills, students will also practice basic reading and math through recipe comprehension. They will work independently and in teams, and they’ll have opportunities to apply their creativity and personal tastes when choosing how to flavor and combine their dishes.

     

    Drama Club, Ms. Eli Hawkins

    The Drama Club is seeking class-clowns, wall-flowers, athletes, academics and outcasts to join us as we laugh, cry and act out together after school on Wednesdays 2:40-4:40.  We will challenge your grit and imagination through character development, script writing, and theater games while building a foundation in blocking, stage direction and technical theater. You will learn strategies for building self-confidence, resiliency, and interpersonal skills through teamwork, communication and critical thinking. Why not take a leap and break a leg? The curtain is calling. See you on the stage!


    Gamers Club, Ms. Whisenhunt:

    Attention anyone who loves to play strategy games! Gamer Club will feature competitive and cooperative table top gaming (both card games and board games--NOT video games). We will use our strategy, logic, and math skills in a fun and energetic environment. Club members will be expected to maintain positive sportsmanship, teamwork, and respect towards their club mates. We will end the session with a game tournament and prizes! Pros and beginners welcome! Game examples: Settlers of Catan, Citadels, Dominion, Magic the Gathering, Chess, Bridge, and many, many more! Club members are welcome to bring their own games too! 

     

    Get REAL, Elizabeth Bobadilla & Cyrus Malapajo  

    Get REAL provides the space and opportunity for youth to meet new friends while building healthy relationship skills through fun, interactive, and meaningful activities, discussions, and games! Example lesson and curriculum topics include: Learning ways to resist negative pressures, how to healthily communicate, and creating healthy boundaries. We look forward to lively and respectful interactions and discussions between group members. As a reward for their hard work, the group will be given a celebratory session on the last day with free food and goodies, as well as a free Get REAL t-shirt!    



    Heart and Sole, Ms. Broadwin, Ms. Kuo, and Ms. Hedges (Begins March 5th!!!)

    Heart & Sole is Girls on the Run’s program for middle school girls! Heart & Sole creates a positive, structured space for middle school girls to learn about themselves, explore new ideas, cultivate empathy, strengthen connections and develop life skills that will help them as they move through adolescence and beyond. This 10-week program is accessible to all girls regardless of athletic ability or fitness level. Physical activity includes strength and conditioning appropriate for this age group. The season culminates with the Girls on the Run 5K, which is the celebratory event that underscores the confidence, competence, connection, character and caring they’ve been developing in the program and gives them a tangible sense of goal setting and achievement. Participants must register on www.girlsrun.org under "Register Now." Heart and Sole will start March 5th. 

    Homework Club

    This program is designed to give students access to the school's technology in a quiet space to work on homework, projects, or do research. This is not a tutoring service. Instead, there will be staff who can give tips and tricks to assist in students' completion of assignments as well as how they can keep organized. Student’s responsibilities in HWC are bringing their work/assignments with them and being productive at all times, even when homework is completed. There are limited spots in the computer lab so there is a strict attendance and behavior policy.  

     

    La Chispa, Ms. Thomson

    Mission of La Chispa is to promote, support, strengthen and engage an integrated and bi-lingual identity within McClure Middle School.  We are inspired to listen to the stories of others and learn from one another.  This is a student led club open to all interested McClure students.  We will learn, practice and use (our) second language more, share our knowledge with others-either mono, bilingual or multi-lingual to move forward, and create a welcoming community for Latinx youth at McClure. We aim to be an example of how friendships can be built; by making everyone feel welcome, respected, and that they belong. If you want to be part of this awesome club at McClure please join La Chispa!

     

    Pottery, Ms. Jane Meagher

    Students will learn the basic skills needed to construct fired clay art projects. We will start with hand building, progress to wheel throwing and then glazing. Students will complete a series of loosely structured projects as well as execute appropriate ideas of their own choosing.

    Yoga Mindfulness, Ms. D’Asaro

    Students can expect improved physical and emotional strength and balance, improved ability to focus their attention, and a newfound ability to self-regulate their behavior through their breath. Each class includes a basic series of simple yoga moves that get more sophisticated as the class continues including each student taking on leadership and teaching of one yoga or mindfulness skill. Confidence gained from yoga can help young adults bring their minds and bodies into greater control and a way to build esteem and confidence.
