Activities

Klondike offers many diverse activities for our students and families throughout the school year.

For Students

Student Council

Klondike offers a chance for our students to get involved outside of the classroom. Students in fourth and fifth grade are able to represent their class in Student Council. Our Student Council has started a school wide recycling program that collects water bottles and other plastic items used at school. They sponsor several spirit days, such as Team Day and Career Day. Our fund raiser donations go to help Riley Children's Hospital in Indianapolis.

Girls on the Run

Our third, fourth, and fifth grade girls are able to join the Girls on the Run program. The girls meet twice a week for ten weeks. At the end of the program the girls are able to participate in a 5K to help them realize that they can reach their goals.

"The curriculum is taught by certified Girls on the Run coaches and includes three parts: understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large." - Girls on the Run

Convocations

We offer many special programs during the school year to allow our students to have experiences that they may not be able to have otherwise. Past programs have included guest authors and poets, a Native American Hoop Dancer, the Harrison High School band, and the Indianapolis Opera.

The Worchester Band from England plays in the Klondike Gym.

For Families

Throughout the year we also have many activities that families can participate in together. Our Title I program offered events, such as Library Night, Family Game Night, Cookies and Canvas, and Family Dance Night. We also hold a special night for our incoming Kindergarten students and their families each spring. Each winter the Klondike PTO hosts the Klondike Carnival. This is a great way to help raise money for our school and have a fantastic time.
