GROW GREEN GIVE: This program started as a student vision and has grown tremendously over the past two years. Students plant seedlings and take them through the cycles of plant life, then prepare them for transplanting into spring, summer, and fall raised beds. Students learn about the plant cycle, greenhouse technologies, gardening, harvesting, and civic responsibility. All produce harvested goes directly to the Grayson County Food Alliance.

TOP CHEF: This program was also a student vision that has become a student favorite over the past three years. We collaborate with local law enforcement and public service professionals to build strong community relationships. Students cook multiple days each week and are judged by these professionals - just like the Top Chef show. It builds the confidence needed in food preparation and assists with the acceptance of constructive criticism.

BRIDGE BUILDING CLUB: This is a fairly new club, completely sponsored by Scotty's Contracting & Stone. Students have the unique opportunity to build and test their own bridges in regional competition in the spring. In addition to the competition, students will be able to take home kits containing all the necessary supplies to build at least one bridge, allowing for the whole family to get in on the fun! Bridge Building helps students develop highly-sought critical thinking and problem-solving skills, allowing students to overcome any obstacle they have now or in their future.

DRAMA CLUB: This program provides a structured environment where students can participate in the art of performance through directing, stage managing, or acting. The Drama Club provides students a creative outlet for expressing and learning to deal with a complex range of emotions. This club will also help your child learn and grow in professionalism, as well as their personal relationship skills. The components of drama have an emphasis on all areas of learning; speaking, listening, reading, and writing, as well as social and emotional. Many students often find that they discover - and uncover - their true potential in the theater.
