We have several interesting Clubs and Activites to choose from.
Battle of the Books
Battle of the Books is a program in which a team of twelve 4th and 5th grade students read a series of pre-selected books and participate in a team competition to answer questions about the books. Summerfield's Battle of the Books team competes against teams from other Guilford Country elementary schools in a day-long event that takes place in February or March. For more detailed information on this program, please visit the Media Center Group Page by clicking here: .
Battle of the Books is sponsored by Mrs. Karen Harris and Mrs. April Roberts.
The Energy Wise Club
The Energy Wise program is designed to educate schools and community alike about energy efficiency and conservation, and to promote energy efficient habits. In our third year, the Energy Wise Club consists of twenty fourth and fifth grade students who meet monthly after school. Members are selected through an application and written statement process. Summerfield’s Energy Wise Club is based on four principles of conserving energy: monitoring, awareness, education and assessment. The Energy Wise club understands that efficiency and conservation are key components of energy sustainability-the concept that each generation should meet its energy needs without compromising the needs of future generations.
Mrs. Kayla Hampton and the ACES Program sponsor the Energy Wise Club.
Kinder Spanish is a fun program that introduces Spanish through music, graphics, sign language, acting skits and playing games. The program usually starts in January and runs for 12 weeks after school.. Check kinderspanish4k.org for more information and to register.
Media Center Student Helpers
Fifth grade students can apply to be a Media Center helper. This typically runs quarterly and takes place from 7:20 am to 7:45 am each morning during Early Morning Checkout Time. Duties include preparing books to be shelved, straightening books on shelves and making sure books are in good order, helping students find books and helping with the check-in process.
Any questions, please ask Karen Harris.
Students on Safety Patrol are 5th graders that assist with safe movement around the campus during student arrival in the morning. Students monitor hallways/sidewalks around the campus and assist with the morning car rider line.
For additional information on Safety Patrol, please contact the program sponsor, Mr. Devin Floyd.
Our goal at Summerfield is to support a three-season garden for students to tend, examine and use for life lessons. Students from classes at different grade levels have the opportunity to plant, water, weed, compost or observe nature in the garden. Some special activities using our garden include:
- Butterfly and Ladybug releases
- Nature Watch
- Plant Lifecycle and Seed Saving lessons
- Produce donation
- Spring Salad Garden
- Sweet Potato Pull
- Pass the Pail composting
- Healthy Vikings Taste Testing
Our school garden is sponsored by Summerfield PTA and is managed by Dr. Lisa Thomas and Dr. Julie Cooper.
Stagelights lessons are age appropriate and centered on fun. Students explore elements of the dramatic arts including characterization, improv, creative movement, puppetry, vocal technique, comedic timing, personal confidence and more! Contact stagelightstheater.com for more information.
Early in the school year, teachers and students identify representatives for every classroom in 1st through 3rd grade. Students in 4th and 5th grades hold campaigns and elections for the position of Secretary, Vice-Chairperson and Chairperson (Chairperson is a 5th grade position only). Members of the student council assist with a number of service projects and spring fun days each year.
