Murlin Heights Elementary offers a number of clubs and activities to engage students and build community within the school.
The Murlin Milers are third and fourth grade students who work toward the admirable goal of walking or running 50 miles by the end of the school year. Students earn toe tokens for every five miles they complete and a t-shirt if they make their 50-mile goal by the end of the school year. The club teaches students about goal setting, encourages daily exercise habits, and improves cardio-vascular fitness. Contact Mr. Baker for more information.
The Art Club encourages a deeper appreciation for art and builds community within the school. The club is open to third graders who are selected based on classroom performance and behavior. Students meet twice a week to work on community-based and extension projects in a small group setting. Contact Mrs. Combs for more information.
Fourth Grade Handbell Choir
This long-established performance group is composed of 16 musically talented fourth graders who perform with handbells during November, December, March, and April. Students audition for the choir and meet twice a week to rehearse. The club strengthens students’ ability to read music, improves their performance skills, and enhances self-esteem. Contact Mr. Pyle for more information.
The student council strives to make the experience educational, worthwhile, and memorable, while enjoying the fun, camaraderie, teamwork, and friendships that come from being in this great organization. The students believe in honesty, integrity, strength of character, care, and confidence. They also embrace a commitment to excellence, loyalty, selflessness, and trust. For more information, contact Mrs. Pindroh or Mrs. Spanel.
