2.  Math Enrichment (MathCounts) Competition Club (open to 6th grade students only) - click here to register (Note that this link will not be active until 8:00 am, Thursday, September 7, for priority registration for PTA members. You will need to login to the PTA website in order to register for Math Enrichment.)  

Details:  Students interested in the club should be high performers in math who wish to be challenged by solving middle school math problems.  Students who are currently enrolled Algebra or 6th Grade Advanced Math (especially those who scored over 500 on the 6th Grade math SOL last year) are strongly encouraged to consider this club.  This club is not recommended for students who need help understanding grade level math skills.  The club follows the MathCounts Program, which heightens students’ interests in mathematics by making mathematical achievement challenging and exciting.  The club will focus on problem-solving strategies and higher-level math concepts. Weekly, the mathletes will solve problems individually and in cooperative groups.  Students who are high performers in the club may be selected to represent Churchill Road in the Fairfax County MathCounts competition.  This competition usually takes place on a Saturday, in February. In addition, all club members are eligible to participate in the AMC8 in Dec. 2017, which will be administered during one of our math club meetings. More information about specific contests/tournaments will be available in November.   Students should supply their own scientific calculator and pencils, but some extras will be available.

3.  Science Olympiad B - The lottery to determine this year's participants in the Science Olympiad B club was conducted Wednesday morning, September 6.  Notice to parents of the results was sent by email Wednesday afternoon.  If you have not received an email, please contact the CRS After-School Activities Committee by clicking here.  The Science Olympiad B coach (Flavia Doboga) will follow up selected participants on additional information on the club shortly.

4.  Bobcat Theater (presented by Rise Up Theater Company) - Participation in Bobcat Theater is audition-based with tryouts scheduled for September 7, 8 and 11 from 3:30 to 5:30 pm.  The program will consist of two performance groups with no distinction between the two. There will be a Tuesday Club (Bobcat Theater – Blue Cast) and a Thursday Club (Bobcat Theater – White Cast).  Both casts will rehearse on their respective day from 3:30-5:30pm and both will prepare a Jr. version of a Broadway musical. Rehearsals will provide students with intensive vocal, acting, and dance training. Each cast will rehearse once a week with additional rehearsals added in the weeks preceding the performances in June. The year will culminate with each cast performing twice at the Arena Stage in Washington DC. This is a year long commitment. Only students in grades 3-6 are eligible for tryouts. For questions contact Mr. Ericson at dhericson@fcps.edu.

DISMISSAL PROCEDURES

 Please go over your child’s club schedule so that he/she will remember to attend the club rather than riding the bus, walking home or waiting for a ride.  Please check the end time of your child’s club and remember to pick up your child on time. Buses are not available after clubs end. If your child attends SACC, then he/she will be escorted back to SACC. Most parents should pick up their child in the lobby. For Chess, please go to the cafeteria.  For Musical Theater, please go to Kiss and Ride.

If your child is not attending ASA clubs that day or someone other than the caregiver is picking up the child, then please email the Attendance Monitors at asa-attendance@churchillroadpta.org.  Please consult the Catalog for details about policies and procedures and contact afterschoolactivities@churchillroadpta.org if you have any questions.
