    CLASS DESCRIPTIONS 

     

    Homework Club

    This program is designed to give students academic support and access to the school's technology in a quiet space to work on homework, projects, or do research. This is not a tutoring or childcare 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. Students needing academic support will receive priority enrollment in this class. Parents and Students will be asked to sign the Homework Club agreement to participate. 

     

    Full! Art Ms. Glynn Rosenberg

    In this after-school class, students will learn the basics of drawing and painting.  Students will be able to focus on their own artistic interests, which could include comics, cartoons & emojis, mural art & graffiti, realism, illustration, apparel design, animals, portraiture, anime, nature, landscapes, graphic design, or abstraction.  Learning will be focused around the elements of art, the principles of design, art vocabulary, and collaboration. Final projects will be student-originated.

     

    Gamer's 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! 

     

    La Chispa, Ms. Thomson & Mr. Rangel

    The mission of La Chispa is to promote, support, strengthen and engage an integrated and bi-lingual identity within McClure Middle School. The motto of La Chispa (Spark Team) is Dream, Learn, Serve. 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! See additional information in attached letter.

     

    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.

     

    Bridge Club, Ms. Anne Farmer, 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!

     

    Full! Cooking Crash Course, Seattle Cucina

    Sign up for this hands on Cooking Crash Course with Seattle Cucina Cooking School! Each week we’ll whip up a recipe that focuses on important cooking skills. We’ll learn how to work with delicious seasonal vegetables, make classic sauces from all over the world, make a well-rounded dinner, bake bread and dessert, prepare the tastiest soups, cook off certain cuts of meat and much much more! Students will have the practical skills necessary to begin cooking at home, and will have new knowledge to eat food in a wholesome, nutritional, and sustainable manner. Class prices include a large snack. Accommodations for dietary restrictions can be made with requests 2 weeks prior- please email classes@seattlecucina.com! 

     

    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!    

     

    Yearbook, Ms. Chelsea Zimmerman

    Learn money-making skills like photography, graphic design and marketing, all while documenting your school spirit. The yearbook club will meet weekly on Thursdays after school. Mr. McKay will be interviewing interested candidates, and we have room for up to 14 students. There will also be opportunities for yearbook team members to be promoted to editorial positions to further build their publishing and leadership skills.

    FULL! New! Game Development/Python I/II, Coding with Kids

    Open to students of all experience levels, Python offers a great entry-point to learn a versatile, professional-level programming language. This class teaches everything from basic syntax to more complex concepts, such as object-oriented development. These tools will be used to create a variety of games, like space invaders and tic-tac-toe. Students just starting out with programming will receive an easy introduction to the core concepts with Scratch, an easy-to-use drag-and-drop programming tool.
