Due to COVID19 restrictions, all afterschool clubs at MES have been cancelled until further notice.
Purpose of Before and After School Clubs
Madison Elementary regards the development and implementation of extracurricular activities as positive, meaningful contributions to the lives of our students. A child’s education may be fully enriched and expanded when involvement beyond the classroom/school day is embraced. School sponsored activities (clubs, events) can be an invaluable setting for nurturing your child to meet his/her fullest potential. Participation and active engagement should provide students with the following:
Opportunities to develop socially through engaging activities which develop and strengthen character, social skills, and leadership skills.
Activities outside the classroom which expand their knowledge and deepen their interest for activity.
Teamwork strategies through the use of various forms of engagement and promote service to the student body, the school, and to the community.
Opportunities to thrive, extend one’s thinking, engage in school spirit, and demonstrate Mustang pride.
Expectations of Club Members:
The club leader/sponsor is responsible for enforcing all school and division regulations during club meetings, practices, and events. Students who participate in clubs are to comply with the CCPS Code of Conduct and the expectations of Madison Elementary; Be respectful, be responsible, and be a ready learner/participant.
Students who make the choice to not comply with proper conduct and/or to the expectations will have the following consequences:
A discussion with the club leader/sponsor.
A conference with club leader/sponsor and parents.
Students will be placed on probation (time out from club- up to 2 meeting dates)
The National Beta Club has been encouraging and developing leadership skills in America’s youth since 1934. The ability to lead creates the conditions that enable others to be as productive and successful as they can be. One who is able to lead is able to accomplish extraordinary things by employing and maximizing their own strengths. The commitment to lead is vital in the establishment and defining of goals. A true leader is able to inspire trust, resolve conflicts, motivate others to their highest achievement, and most importantly be of service to others.

Book club gives students an opportunity to dive deep into a book to explore the characters, setting, and plot. Students will participate in discussions, games, and fun activities to help them make connections to themselves and the world around them.
Cheer team is a brand new club for MES! Members will be accepted from grades 3-5. The character goals we will be focusing on are sportsmanship, teamwork, discipline and responsibility. We will be working on sideline cheers, chants and basic stunts (no higher than chest level, no tosses).
Chess club is open to all students in grades 2-5. In Chess Club students get to work on critical thinking skills and problem solving strategies while learning to play the game of chess. The students are instructed on basic chess fundamentals and have an opportunity to play the game and learn from one another.
The MES choir is a group of 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders who gather because they love music. This year the choir has several appearances, not only in school, but also out in the Caroline County community
Math ClubStudents will be able to use and practice Math in everyday life skills. We will bring Math to life by cooking in the kitchen, working in the garden, creating in the workshop, and many other fun activities to show how we use Math in our everyday living.
The Mustang Dance Club is an after-school program geared toward primary grade levels (K-2nd). The leaders of the dance team are NOT formally trained dancers, but instead teachers at MES who appreciate music and movement and the positive benefits it has on student development. The Dance Club promotes finding the rhythm in music and allowing the students to move in harmony with the music. The club allows students to enjoy time with peers (building sense of community) and exercise through dance in a structured environment.
The Madison Elementary running club provides students with a safe and positive place to be physically active. We promote and encourage teamwork, friendship, hard work and always trying your best. There are numerous benefits to gain from running and the students who participate are receiving not only the health benefits but also the knowledge to be physically active for a lifetime.We end running club with having everyone running a local race. Go Mustangs!
STEM club is a gathering of students that meets to work on inquiry-based Science, Technology, Engineering and Math related activities.
Yoga is a great physical activity for kids. It helps students focus, can be a great mental break for them, builds strength, confidence, and a feeling of accomplishment. Most importantly, kids have fun doing yoga, and it will be a great way to start each Tuesday morning.
