Linda Verde Elementary Clubs & Activities
At Linda Verde Elementary School, we believe there’s a lot more to education than just what happens in the classroom. Students need the opportunity to apply their skills with extracurricular, hand-on activities like clubs and sports. We offer our students many opportunities to get involved outside the classroom, allowing them the chance to grow not just academically but physically and socially as well. Our families are also an integral part of our clubs/activities, as we work together to build a school community; that is supportive in ensuring all children have opportunities to grow and develop.
To learn more about joining a school club, please contact your child’s teacher or Mrs. Phinlang Camacho, our school Clubs/Activities liaison.

Boys club is based on the core belief that a climate of mutual respect and high expectations provides a foundation to increase learner involvement. As a school, we find these beliefs to be important both in and out of the classroom.
We will teach and model these values throughout the year as we begin our journey with our boys this year.
Musical Theater Club
(Ms. Boone & Ms. Katie)
Our students from grades TK/K through 2nd grade will be immersed in an array of activities, ranging from costuming, prop preparation, dancing, and singing. During the school year, all club members will be performing in two major events; during our Winter concert, and also for the CREATE Festival in conjunction with the city of Lancaster Performing Arts program.
School Garden Club
Students in grades 4th & 5th participate in learning experiences to enhance their understanding of fresh foods, as they learn to prepare the garden, pulling out weeds, preparing the earth, planting seeds, watering and caring for a variety of fruits and vegetable plants, which yield their fruits during the summer. This club starts in the spring, the time of the year for planting, and concludes at the end of the school year.
Students who love reading will be participating in this club, and also students who need help with reading skills are welcomed to join. Starting in late fall, students will be immersed in reading grade level books of their choice, and will also have an opportunity to grow their love for reading.

Coding provides students with a fun and safe way to gain problem solving and computational thinking skills. Students will develop these skills and gain coding experiences using Ozobots, Ozoblockly, CODE.org, and Scratch Jr. from MIT to create their own interactive stories and games.
Our very own Linda Verde club will be leading the effort in prevention of childhood inactivity and obesity. Students run during the morning, and later in the Spring, will begin running in the afternoons. Students keep track of their progress, miles ran, and also, their overall well-being.
