If your child already knows how to play chess and wants opportunities to play with others or to learn more about the game, Hunter Elementary’s Chess Club is a great way to have fun, learn, and play lots of chess!
Playing chess can improve academic skills such as concentration, creativity, and reasoning, and can enhance life skills such as self-confidence, resilience, and assertiveness. Our chess club is sponsored by the Hunter PTA, led by a team of enthusiastic parent volunteers, and is open to all Hunter students who know how to play chess.
In the 2020-2021 academic year, we meet online on Wednesday afternoons throughout the school year. Each week, students learn new chess skills and practice them by playing chess using ChessKid.com. We also use the same platform to play each other between meetings and to hold online tournaments.
Register for chess club at bit.ly/HunterChessReg. Review the information in the registration form even if your child does not know how to play chess.PTA After School Art Club (Art Club currently postponed for 2020 - 2021 school year)Art Club meets ONCE PER MONTH after school, enabling students to spend extra time in the art room exploring their creativity and using their imagination while making awesome art! Students may work on one of the provided activities, or create their own art projects with the available supplies.
This year we will be partnering with students from Art Outreach at Raleigh Charter High School to create a more enhanced art studio experience. These high school artists will be mentors to our students and will actively be involved introducing new artistic projects and materials to inspire both individual and collaborative art.
Art Club is open to any student in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Our club has continuously grown throughout the years, making it necessary for us to spread out the club over a course of four days per month in order to accommodate all interested students. This year, Art Club is offered one Monday, one Tuesday, one Wednesday OR one Thursday each month. PLEASE NOTE: Students will only attend Art Club ONE DAY a month. Each of the Art Clubs are offered the same supplies and activities each month, so the only difference between the clubs is that you choose the day that is most convenient for you.
Please check all of the dates carefully before signing up for an Art Club day - once a club has reached capacity, that day will be closed. It is also extremely difficult to change your Art Club day during the school year due to the large amount of students in each day of Art Club – so please check the dates for the best fit to your schedule.
2019 - 2020 Dates Coming Soon!
