After School Clubs

Horizon Academy offers several After School Clubs geared toward different interests.  Students have the opportunity to develop friendships, learn new skills, and have fun! There are four sessions of After School Clubs throughout the year. The 1st Quarter After School Clubs run from August 18 – October 11. The sign up deadline is August 7. All clubs run from 3:15 to 4:30 unless otherwise stated.

Homework Club

The After School Homework Club provides a quiet atmosphere for students to do homework. Individual help is available when needed.

Cross Country

Practices will be held Monday through Thursday. A minimum of 2 days per week is required. Students will have the option to participate in 1-2 meets, as well as the Dyslexia Dash.

Cooking

Come learn the secrets of a real Master Chef! Chef McAree (Horizon Academy parent) will teach the students how to make nutritious and tasty dishes that can be prepared and shared with the whole family

Collaborative Storytelling Club

Students will take on the role of fantasy characters in the game world and use teamwork, problem solving, math, and strategy to explore and survive in a dangerous dungeon. Students have the freedom to create their own character, like a dastardly pirate, brilliant wizard, or mischievous spy. They use their character’s skills and their own ingenuity as they go on an adventure. Role playing games use the best graphics available, the players own imagination.

Private Music Lessons

Half hour lessons are offered for keyboard, guitar, bass and drums. Students will participate in Homework Club before and after their lesson at no extra cost.

Artist Trading Cards

In 1997, M. Vanci Stirnemann, a Swiss artist, created 1200 2.5″ x 3.5″ cards by hand as part of an exhibit. On the last day, he invited others to create their own cards and trade with him during the closing reception. Artist trading cards (ATCs) are miniature pieces of art that are traded around the world. Artists will develop their drawing skills and can create, trade and collect the sets they will make using Sharpies, watercolor, and a variety of other materials.

Horizon Academy Garage Band

All students wishing to play in the band must be enrolled in private lessons here at school or elsewhere. Don’t worry if you are a beginner. Everyone is welcome. The Garage Band will perform at Fall Fest in September. Members of the band agree to attend all practices and the performances.

Girls Leadership Club

Horizon Academy’s 5th-8th grade girls have an opportunity to develop leadership skills, build relationships, and better our community in a girls-only environment. Over the course of the 9-week club, we will choose a local cause, develop a fundraising opportunity, and see it through – all while learning the importance (and ins and outs) of cultivating strong female friendships early in life.

Make a Video Game Club

Students will use MIT’s Scratch programming language to program their own games. Students will also learn about simple circuits to create a game controller with Makey Makey. Students will see how math can be useful and fun. Students
interested in this club should be familiar with multiplying and dividing.

Mad Science

Fun, hands-on, students will enjoy chemistry, learn about the electricity in their homes, have fun with stunt planes and fundamental forces, learn about the science behind magic, super structures, become Jr. Detectives and study about bugs! The fun starts in March.

Sky Zone

Come and jump your heart out at the Shawnee Sky Zone indoor trampoline park. Students will be transported by the Horizon Academy bus to and from Sky Zone.
