What is World Travelers?
Three times in the school year (typically, October, January and April), this committee creates a two-part virtual travel experience for participating students in grades 1-4.
The first part is the “Travelogue” which typically takes place on a Wednesday in the Resource Center during lunch recess. Participating 3rd and 4th graders attend before their lunch (11:25-11:55) and 1st and 2nd graders attend after their lunch (11:55-12:25). During Travelogue, students learn about the history and culture of a particular country in a fun and engaging way. Later in the week, typically on Friday, students enjoy a catered lunch featuring food from that country.
The Hubbards Woods PTO works in collaboration with Chess Wizards, a national scholastic program, to offer chess education and game-playing experience to Hubbard Woods students (of all abilities) in grades 1-4.
The chess program takes place once a week (usually, in the Resource Center), during the students’ lunch hour, and is run by Chess Wizards instructors who provide chess boards and all necessary items to play. The program is offered approximately three times a year (fall, winter and spring).
Registration information is sent home in students’ backpacks by their teachers. Keep an eye out for registration reminders on at hubbardwoods36pto.org and in The Item.
Girls on the Run is a program that takes place in the fall and gives girls the opportunity to build confidence and healthy habits. The girls learn how to make great friendships, how to celebrate all that makes you unique, and so much more! Practices are held Tuesdays and Thursdays and involve training and activities that help build endurance for a 5k running event in November.
The Bike Rodeo is held every May for second grade children on the Hubbard Woods school playground. It is designed to build students’ independence, confidence, physical strength and competence on their bicycles.
