Eagle Jump Force Third and Fourth Grade Monday – Friday
7:45 – 8:15 AM
The Eagle Jump Force program is designed for third and fourth grade students. The program is open on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays to students who arrive, via their own transportation, at 7:45 (buses do not arrive until 8:00). We will have full 30-minute practices to develop skills and prepare for exhibitions and programs. Tuesdays and Thursdays will be open to students who ride the buses and may be here for only a few minutes. The focus on Tuesdays and Thursdays will be skill development and fitness, but not to the extent that the three-day program will cover. Students who come on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays are also welcome and encouraged to attend on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Boys and girls who expect to be involved in programs and exhibitions need to be here each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 7:45. We will meet in the gym.
Jumping rope and walking are great cardio-respiratory fitness activities. Early morning activity enhances mental alertness in the classroom and has a calming effect on many youngsters. While jumping rope, the children will learn many skills and “tricks” that contribute to positive self-esteem…and jumping rope with friends is just plain FUN!
Early Morning Walking Club Monday – Friday
7:50 – 8:20 AM
All grade levels, K – 4, are encouraged to participate. Children who eat breakfast must do so before going to the track for walking. Other students need to enter the building as usual, place their book bags against the walls by the art room and then go to the track. An “OPEN” or “CLOSED” sign will be displayed every day on the cafeteria hall doors.

Walking a few laps around the track helps to set the tone for a good day and also offers students opportunities for interaction with friends and siblings.
Destination Imagination (DI) is a non-profit, volunteer-led, cause-driven organization. Our purpose is to inspire and equip students to become the next generation of innovators and leaders. Annually, we offer seven new standards-based Challenges in STEM, Improv, Visual Arts, Service Learning, and Early Learning. Each Challenge enables student teams to learn and experience the creative process from imagination to innovation.
