Here at Park Lawn, we offer a variety of extra-curricular activities throughout our school year. Opportunities range from student service groups, sports, safety clubs, academic clubs and curiosity clubs. Please check our school website News and weekly Panther Press newsletters for selection, schedules, and sign up instructions.
The Panther Project This 5K-4th grade student service group works to create a better Oconomowoc by participating in Salvation Army events, raising funds for Pennies for Patients, creating blankets for the children at our local hospitals, facilitating our Park Lawn food drive, partnering with local senior citizens to play games and read books and sending cards and well wishes to our hero’s overseas.
The Park Lawn Today Show The Park Lawn Today Show is our in-house television broadcast announcing our Park Lawn daily activities. Included in these announcements is the Pledge of Allegiance, the morning’s headlines, a weather forecast, daily lunch choices and student birthdays to name just a few. We have a monthly cast of fourth grade students who are our Today Show anchors, weathermen and Wednesday morning workout guru’s. Behind the scenes, students are busy being producers, stage managers and sound/video mixers. Each broadcast begins with our Park Lawn Today Show logo and music, and ends with a reminder for all students to be Respectful, Responsible and Safe, our PBIS school goals. This morning show is a long standing tradition at Park Lawn that continues with great contribution from the OPEF Broadcast Technology Grant.
Reading Rocks! Reading Rocks is a fun book club for students in Kindergarten through Second Grade. It is a opportunity for us to get together and enjoy all things reading!
The Wonder Fair The Wonder Fair is an opportunity for your child to develop a question about any subject, research it, collect evidence, draw a conclusion and share their findings with our Park Lawn friends and families. This club does not meet as a group, rather, individuals meet with their advisor to discuss their ideas and check-in on progress. The Wonder Fair is an event not to be missed! With about 120 participants each year from grades K-4, this spring event brings the most creative and innovative student projects to our school.
Running Club This fall and spring club is a great opportunity to be outside running with friends, and playing games on our field and is open to 3rd and 4th graders.
Lego Club If you're into building towers, ships and cities, our Lego Club is for you! This club has become so popular that we have built in extra sessions just to meet our student demand. Open to all grade levels throughout the year, Lego Club is an exciting place to use your imagination and engineering skills.
