Voting for Kids Council




Kids Council

Each classroom nominates and votes on a President, Vice-President, and Secretary for their class. These students run for office just like real politicians – they must state their platform, make speeches, campaign, etc. Real polls are used for students to vote – students must show their voter registration card to the poll volunteer in order to vote.  Once winners in the classrooms are declared, the council meets with the principal of the school monthly to voice their opinions on improving the school. Prior to the meeting with the principal, the council leads weekly class meetings to determine topics of concern.

Science Olympiad





Science Olympiad

North Carolina Science Olympiad’s elementary events were developed by North Carolina Master Elementary Teachers. The events align with the NC Standard Course of Study and what teachers are already doing in the classroom. Further, these events are well balanced between the various science disciplines, requiring knowledge of science facts, concepts, processes, skills and applications.  Students meet on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month.  Parents will need to pick up their child at 4:00.
