Math and Science Club
Hancock Elementary has partnered with college students from the American Medical Student Association at ASU to form a Science Club. The ASU students come for six weeks and work together to perform science experiments, games, and activities with 3-4 grade students at Hancock. The 50 Hancock students are very excited each week to interact and learn from the ASU students. The goal of the club is to engage children from an early age in S.T.E.M. activities and build an excitement for science.
Kindness Club is a student club for grades 4-6. Student representatives are selected within the classroom. Kindness Club members meet monthly to review "kind acts" nominations and select winners for each month. At monthly assemblies, Kindness Club members honor the kind acts with a PowerPoint presentation of the student's picture and reason for the kind act as well as giving each student a "Caught You Being Kind" t-shirt.Young Rembrandts teaches basic drawing skills, art techniques and vocabulary. We provide all materials and teach new lessons each week in a positive and nurturing environment, which brings out the best in each child.
