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.

The Mustang Dance Club is an after-school program geared toward primary grade levels (K-2nd). We are committed each Thursday from 4:00 to 4:45 to physical activity through use of dance and movement. The leaders of the dance team are NOT formally trained dancers, but instead two 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 Recorder Club will consist of up to ten 4th and ten 5th grade students who wish to deepen their skills and understanding in the recorder and reading music. The Recorder Club will run during the second semester of school on Tuesday afternoons from 4:00-4:45
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.

We start the year out with only 3rd-5th graders participating. The second half of the year K-2nd graders may join the club. We end running club with having everyone running a local race. Go Mustangs!
MES has a very active Student Council Association. The organization is run by 4th and 5th grade student officers and is comprised of a class representative from each class in grades 3-5.
