While at ESS, your child will have the opportunity to grow academically, socially, and physically. ESS offers a wide variety of extracurricular activities for your child to participate in throughout the school year.
We offer academic competitions for children in grades 3rd through 6th to compete in. These competitions include Challenge Math 24, Jeopardy (Social Sciences & Language Arts), and Speech. At the end of the 2011/2012 school year, the students that participated in the most competitions and had the highest cumulative scores will be invited to participate in the ESS Academic Bowl (a special event solely for ESS students).
Fifth grade ESS students will have the chance to experience
JA BizTown ™. This amazing program introduces students to economics and business through classroom instruction (provided by your ESS staff). For one day the students become adults and operate a life-size mini-municipality complete with a bank, City Hall, professional offices, radio station, T.V. station, businesses, a snack shop, and a community charity. They become doctors, business managers, real-estate agents, philanthropists and accountants. The JA BizTown ™ curriculum addresses the California State Standards and makes learning relevant for students.
4th - 6th graders will have the ability to compete in our Varsity Kickball Tournament that takes place in the Spring. All students must have evidence of health insurance and exhibit good behavior to be a part of their ESS kickball team. Students will travel by District bus to compete against other ESS teams.
6th graders will also have the option to participate in a Scrabble Tournament. Check with your Site Leader and the ESS web page for upcoming competition dates.
