Chorus - Advisor:  Ms. Pritchard

All Fourth and Fifth grade students who are interested in learning more about vocal technique and enjoy singing and performing with a vocal ensemble are invited to join Chorus!  Chorus is an enrichment program for Fourth and Fifth grade students only.  These students will perform a variety of styles of music in various concerts throughout the school year.  Chorus meets once a week on Fridays from 7:30-8:20a.m. in the Music room.

Readers' Rally Book Club - Advisors:  Ms. Carroll and Ms. Treadwell

Readers Rally is a reading quiz bowl style competition for students in grades four through twelve. Students read books from a pre-determined list and answer questions about those books. Each Gwinnett County school may send one team of ten players or less to the Readers Rally event on March. The purpose of the Readers Rally Club at Minor is to encourage life-long readers who enjoy reading a variety of genres and discussing literature with their peers.  Students will be chosen from this club to take part in the county-wide competition on March 8, 2014.  We will meet every other Tuesday from September through November, when we will choose our team. From that point on, we will meet with the team members until the competition in March.

 

Girls on the Run - Advisor:  Ms. Alvira

Girls on the Run combines training for a 5k (3.1 miles) event with healthy living education. We use exercise, positive reinforcement, and encouraging role models to help girls discover the confidence they need in those critical pre-teen years and beyond. Through interactive activities such as running, playing games and discussing important issues, participants learn how to celebrate being their unique and real selves.  Girls on the Run will be offered Spring 2014.

 

Safety Patrol - Advisor:   Counselors

Each school year the Counselor Advisory Council at Minor Elementary sponsors a Safety Patrol. Students in Safety Patrol help monitor hallway and bathroom behavior during morning arrival and afternoon dismissal. Some Safety Patrol students help with grab n go breakfast, nursery bus riders, car riders, as well as other posts. Safety Patrollers are also responsible for flag duty. One purpose of Safety Patrol is to give students a leadership opportunity in the school. Another purpose is to help improve student behavior and school climate during arrival and dismissal times. Two responsible students from each 4th and 5th grade class will be nominated by their teacher to be on the Safety Patrol. Students serve on Safety Patrol for the first semester; then teachers nominate different students for 2nd semester.

 

Student Council - Advisor: Counselors

Student Council is a leadership organization with a focus on school improvement at Rebecca Minor Elementary.  Members are chosen by their classmates to represent their class. Student Council is made up of two representatives from each 4th and 5th grade classroom.  It is an honor for a student to be selected as a member of Student Council.  Members are expected to be examples for their classmates through their academic performance, conduct, and attendance.  Members are required to attend and participate in regular meetings by sharing input gathered from peers, and provide feedback with the Principal on how we can improve our school. In addition, representatives should share information from the meetings with their class.

Witzzle Pro - Advisor:  Mr. Elliott

The Witzzle Pro Club is for students in 4th and 5th grade. We meet once a week between the months of October and April to increase our mathematical skills and to have fun with other "math-minded people".   A Witzzle (Witty Puzzle) is comprised of a unique 3 by 3 array of the digits 1 - 9 and a challenge to manipulate three digits and two operations to equal a target number. Students must draw upon their knowledge of basic math facts, understanding of numbers and operations, and apply problem-solving strategies.  We have an annual "Minor-Corley Invitational Tournament" and the top 2 winners from each school go on to the county tournament.
