Students work on challenging and complex problems, as they get ready for the sprint, target and team round of the competition. We look at many different areas of math including algebra, geometry, puzzles, and probability. If you are new to Palo Alto schools and would like to make new friends, join the Newcomer’s Club. The club is open to anyone, not only newcomers. You’re welcome to bring a friend whether the friend is new to Palo Alto or not. If you are not new to JLS and would like to meet some newcomers, join us. Bring your lunch; there will be games and snacks too. Students will learn about Robin Hood through films and stories and discuss the legend and the history. Get actively involved, playing soccer to promote teamwork, friendship, and sportsmanship. Students will improve their skills over the year. Boys, girls, and all newcomers welcome. We meet on the fields on Fridays at lunch and pick teams. Students will be able to watch cartoons starring their favorite superheroes like Superman, Batman, Spiderman, Wonder Woman (basically any hero). The tennis club is for tennis players of all skill levels to come out and play matches or participate in tennis clinics to help improve their skills. Take a mini-‐break from reality and enjoy your lunch while watching classic cartoons with your friends! Appreciate the early animation art form while meeting Tom and Jerry, Fred and Barney, and maybe even Popeye and Olive Oil! Room location alternates between Ms. Soong and Mrs. Constant. Need a break from sitting in class? Feel like chatting? Come and do both, walk and talk around the JLS athletic fields. Take a nice walk around the dirt track during lunch while hanging out and chatting with friends. This is a great way to meet new people and have fun too. Bring a friend! Coach Creighton's wrestling club is designed to introduce students to the sport of wrestling. Activities will include basic techniques, conditioning, film study and meditation. The club is open to boys and girls. Students who enjoy doing things for other people and learning about people and cultures from other parts of the world should check out the YCS (Youth Community Service) club. We will help plan mini service projects and also have the opportunity to participate in a variety of community -‐minded events throughout the year. Have Questions?
