The Eagle Crest Handchime Choir is open to 4th and 5th graders. It is a non-auditioned group and all are welcome! The hand chime choir will put on 2 concerts per year, one in December and one in May. We play a variety of acapella music, from classical music to pop!
This year, the Eco Eagles (also known as STEM Explorers) will focus on sustainability and service projects that will include STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math). We will do garden work, campaign for energy/water conservation, sort and reduce waste, and encourage student-driven projects based on their interests in these areas.

VEX IQ Robotics Team
Our VEX IQ Robotics Team is a collection of 4th and 5th Graders that work together in teams of four to build a robot and compete in the yearly VEX IQ Challenge.
Each year the challenge changes, and students must plan and build a robot to complete the new objectives and score as many points as possible. Students take their robots to tournaments to compete in cooperative challenges with students from other schools. Both teams have one minute to work together to score as many points as they can. In addition to driving their robots, students also build programs so that their robots can work autonomously.
Students on our robotics team learn teamwork, perseverance, communication, and collaboration skills.
