A collection of students who enjoy competing in Academic meets or Quiz bowls. They answer questions on topics such as history, literature, science, math, pop culture, and current events. Students benefit from exposure to a broad range of school and cultural subjects, memorization and study skills, and an improved ability to cooperate and work in teams. The game is played with a lockout buzzer system between two teams consisting of four players each. A moderator reads questions to the teams, whose players endeavor to buzz in first with the correct answer, scoring points for their team. The team is open to both 5th and 6th graders, with tryouts occurring in the 1st quarter of the school year. Contact the Academic Team coach, Kevin Koch, with any questions or concerns.
The purpose of this club is to expand on the basic archery skills that are taught as part of our physical education curriculum. Students who are not it PE may still be in Archery Club. We will once again take our top archers to form a competition team. They will compete against other teams in the Mustang district. The fee/dues for this club is $20, which includes a club t-shirt. These fees will go towards the purchase, maintenance and use of equipment.
Canyon Cares is a service- based group in which students have the opportunity to participate in service projects and endeavors for our community. The group will meet periodically throughout the year, and students are not required to attend all of the meetings. Students will receive a permission slip before each meeting with details of the project.
Circle the State with Song (CTSWS)
To qualify for CTSWS, a student must have made Honor Choir and be a member. CTSWS is a regional choir, made up of 4th-8th graders primarily throughout Canadian County. Students in CTSWS will rehearse once a week in the mornings during the Fall, and then twice a week after school throughout the month of January. CTSWS members must be self-starters with a fair amount of discipline, as they will be expected to spend time learning their specific parts of music on their own. This choir will perform on Saturday, February 6th, 2015, at the Yukon Performing Arts Center.
An auditioned choir made up of 60 5th and 6th grade students.

Students who qualified for Honor Choir and are current members in good standing this Spring, will also be allowed the option of performing a solo at Tri-State.
