Van Cortlandtville Elementary School

Clubs & Organizations

Art Club

Beginning Wednesday November 2nd, there will be an after-school Art Club offered here at Van Cortlandtville.  It will take place on Wednesdays from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.  This club will be for Fifth Graders Only.  Registration will be based on a Lotto and will be limited to twenty students.  During this program, students will participate in various artmaking activities, including but not limited to drawing, painting, and sculpting. Students will receive a wide variety of art instruction and have an opportunity to explore new techniques in addition to those from art class.  This club will also provide students the chance to express themselves through the artistic process and collaborate with peers.  


Student Leadership Team

The Fifth Grade Student Leadership Team serves as ambassadors for Van Cortlandtville Elementary School. They are guided by the belief that service is the path to happiness. With this in mind, they serve as mentors to our primary grade students. Additionally, they volunteer for school events. For instance, they serve as tour guides during Family-Teacher Conference Nights.

All County Chorus

Each year a select group of Van Cort students are selected to participate in the Westchester County Chorus competition, which takes place in the Spring.

Intramural Sports Club with Patrick Connolly

This 5th grade club will take place on MONDAYS, WEDNESDAYS, AND FRIDAYS from 7:20 a.m. - 8:00 a.m.  All fifth grade students are allowed to participate once they have handed in a permission slip.  During this program, the students will develop their skills and knowledge in various sports (Fall-SOCCER, Winter-BASKETBALL, Spring-FLOOR HOCKEY).  The students will get an opportunity to socially interact with other students in their grade while actively participating in an organized sport.  This club will allow students to release some energy prior to the start of their school day while having fun with classmates.

Coding Club

An Advisor works with different groups of students for 8 weeks using apps and online programs appropriate for their grade level.  These sessions go over what’s “under the hood” of webpages and video games and everything else controlled by computers. There are some free and fun tools designed for kids so that they can learn to build their own animations, games and more!
