Clubs for Kids

Chess Club


Chess Club begins in November and is held during lunch on Fridays for interested 2nd-5th graders.


The NEW Jaguar CLAW Club (Cultural Learning & Awareness) will promote awareness, appreciation and acceptance of the diverse cultures within our school community and beyond.  CLAW will meet one a month, after school (3:15-4:15) in the library.  During these interactive meetings, students will learn about the day-in- a-life of a student from various countries. We will have country-specific crafts, music and movement activities as well as movies, and guest-speakers from relevant countries, when available.

If you would like to present your culture to our club members– please contact Kristin Owen at:

Eco Club

This group is designed to educate our students about science and the environment. We will talk
about things kids can do now to improve the health of the world we live in. In past years, our big
projects have included adopting animals at Brookfield Zoo, collecting plastic caps for the benches in front of school, and selling reusable straws to raise money for the Jackson garden. Our kids can make a difference and they can begin right here at Jackson!!

If your Jaguar is interested, please fill out the permission slip. Contact Bridget Butterly at with any questions.
