2019 PTO Club Offerings
The Anthony Wayne Chess club provides an opportunity for any student who wishes to learn the fundamentals of Chess. Chess is considered one of the greatest board games ever created and
children who learn how to play can increase their I.Q. Students joining this club will have the opportunity to play live opponents and learn various strategies on how to become a better player. Access the permission slip by clicking here.
Mindfulness is a practice of staying present in the moment and focusing on one thing at a time. The class, held after school with Mrs. Zaolino and Mrs. Oesterle, will help the students to stay in the present. They will learn to practice their gratitude with forming good intentions for the day and focusing on the positive side of life. We will be practicing mindfulness by leading the students in a guided meditation and practicing some breathing techniques. We will also be having a gentle yoga practice to help connect our body, minds and spirit. Access the permission slip by clicking here.
Rock Band Club
Do you love the sound of heavily distorted guitars and energetic drum beats? Are you always singing along to your favorite rock songs at home? Would you like the opportunity to jam out with your peers (and Mr. Maher) and learn how to play some of your favorite songs in a band setting? Well then rock band club just might be the place for you! Rock Band Club is intended for students who already have *some* experience playing a musical instrument (guitar, bass, or drums) who would like to improve. We will be practicing together as a band in order to learn and perform a selection of popular punk/rock/metal songs from various decades. We will also discuss some rock history, cover important musical concepts, and gain a greater understanding of the role each instrument plays in constructing a great song.
