CLUBS & ORGANIZATIONS
TOGETHER WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE
K-P Middle school clubs & organizations
The purpose of the activities program is to furnish opportunity for the development of the student which is not included in the regular academic subjects.
The Activities Program is organized so that each student may participate according to his/her interests. There is a place for every student and every student should make and effort to take part in at least one activity. We are proud of Kingsley-Pierson High School. Your school is only what you make it. Therefore your active participation is necessary if we are to grow stronger and better. By all means, take part! School spirit begins and end with you.
K-P BOOK CLUB
The Kingsley-Pierson Middle school book club meets weekly. We read some of the new and upcoming books in adolescent and young adult literature. We host holiday gathering, teen movie nights and also do thing that give back to the community. We also participate in AEA’s annual Book Bash. For Book Bash students read books off of a given reading list and then compete in a quiz bowl type format.
The Kingsley-Pierson CSD believes education enhancement requires consistently fair and equitable educational and employment practices without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, creed, age, sexual orientation, marital status, sex, gender, gender identity, disability or socio-economic status.
D.A.R.E. envisions a world in which students everywhere are empowered to respect others and choose to lead lives free from violence, substance abuse, and other dangerous behaviors.
This year millions of school children around the world will benefit from D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education), the highly acclaimed program that gives kids the skills they need to avoid involvement in drugs, gangs, and violence.
D.A.R.E. was founded in 1983 and has proven so successful that it has been implemented in thousands of schools throughout the United States and many other countries.
D.A.R.E. is a police officer-led series of classroom lessons that teaches children from kindergarten through 12th grade how to resist peer pressure and live productive drug and violence-free lives.
K-P LEGO LEAGUE
What is Lego League?
Lego league is more than just playing with Legos. There are four competitions that these teams compete in.
- Core Values-where the student complete tasks and are judged on how they work together as a team
- Robot design where their Lego Mindstorm robot is judged on design and attachments
- Robot competition where the team’s code or program a lego robot to complete certain tasks such as pick up and move things around the table to earn points.
- Project-The teams must create a project that ties into the theme. This years theme is Animal Allies so the teams worked to find creative solutions to help animals. The Black Squirrel team designed and built squirrel shacks to put up around Kingsley. The Busy Beez have put together seed packets and informational brochures that will be distributed at nature centers to help bees continue to pollinate and stay in their hives.
Tomorrow’s innovators practice imaginative thinking and teamwork. Guided by adult Coaches, FIRST LEGO League teams research a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc., and are challenged to develop a solution. This year’s topic is Animal Allies. They also must design, build, program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology, then compete on a table-top playing field.
It all adds up to tons of fun while they learn to apply science, technology, engineering, and math concepts (STEM), plus a big dose of imagination, to solve a problem. Along their discovery journey, they develop critical thinking and team-building skills, basic STEM applications, and even presentation skills, as they must present their solutions with a dash of creativity to judges. They also practice the Program’s signature Core Values.
