Activities & Clubs
Buffalo Trail Elementary Student Clubs

Chess Club – Chess Club meets once per week to teach students how to play chess.  Our goal is to inspire a love of chess and prepare students to compete in the district tournament.  Chess Club is open to students in grade 3 – 5.  Please contact Mrs. Hurtuk to request more information at  thurtuk@cherrycreekschools.org

Battle of the Books – Battle of the Books is designed to have 4th and 5th grade students participate in weekly book studies/club sessions.  The participating students work collaboratively to discuss award winning pieces of literature and respond to questions about plot, characters, setting, and theme.  At the end of the study sessions, student teams will compete against one another at the CCSD Battle of the Books Competition.  Please contact Mrs. Wells to request additional information at  mwells4@cherrycreekschools.org

Choir – Students in grades 3-5 have the opportunity to join.  Students who are interested in choir should love to sing and want to learn more about how to use their voices.  The choir rehearses every week and performs several times throughout the school year including the Veterans Assembly, a winter concert, Multicultural Night, and a spring concert.  Please contact Mrs. King at aking22@cherrycreekschools.org with any questions. 

Student Leadership Club – This club meets 2-3 times per month and is open to all fifth-grade students who wish to participate.  The club's mission is to encourage students to initiate leadership and service opportunities in the school and greater community by living out The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People to enhance responsibility, empathy, communication, and advocacy skills.  Teacher facilitator contact information will be updated here in the near future.

Destination Imagination – Students in grades K-5 will be presented with challenges that encourage them to use the creative process to turn their ideas into reality.  Students work in teams to research, design and build a solution to their preferred challenge.  In solving a challenge, they learn the creative process – a powerful learning tool that helps students assess problems, reflect on their progress, learn from failure and turn their original ideas into reality.  Students who participate in the Challenge Program have the opportunity to present their solutions at a local tournament and if they qualify at the state level, they're invited to participate in Global Finals, our culminating international tournament that celebrates student creativity.  Please contact Mrs. Hurtuk to request additional information at thurtuk@cherrycreekschools.org
