Choir is open to students who are in the 4th - 8th grade. We sing music from different time periods and genres and perform at the two big school concerts. Choir students also go caroling through the classrooms before we leave for winter break, and have some opportunities to sing at all district events in the spring. Choir students are also involved in the school musical.
The Academic Pentathlon is an exciting five-event competition for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders.

It provides an environment conducive to learning, where individual leadership, cooperation, and peer support are incorporated as motivators. Teamwork is the heart of the Academic Pentathlon. https://georgekellyacademicpentathlon.weebly.com/
