Plank Activities

  • Art Club members work on creating art projects involving a variety of materials chosen by the student. This club is open to all students. No art skills are needed. Art Club meets on Thursdays after school from 3:00-4:00. See the bulletin board outside the Art Rooms for upcoming meeting dates. The club is sponsored by Mr. Everson and Mrs. Briski. 
    Robotics Club is open to all 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students who enjoy legos, robotics, and teamwork! The Robotics Club at Plank is part of a larger group called First Lego League. Students will work together to compete against other schools in a competition that includes robotics, teamwork, and a presentation. The Robotics Club meets Tuesdays after school.
    Yearbook Club involves taking pictures of the events around the school and creatively putting together a "Treasure Chest" full of memories for the school year. If you would like to be part of the fun in creating our school’s yearbook, then this is the club for you! Yearbook Club is sponsored by Ms. Thill.     
    Plank Video Club students will create/edit videos using Adobe Elements Premiere or other editing software like iMovie. We will also take digital pictures, explore pod casts, and select music for projects.  Students will learn to use Animoto, Voicethread, Audacity and other web based online programs.  Students will create using digital tools such as iPads, iPods, digital cameras and editing programs.  The focus will be on creating book trailers, but not limited to this activity. Many of the club activities will focus on recording school events and life at Plank Junior High. We will meet on Tuesdays in the LRC lab from 3:00-4:00 pm.  The club is sponsored by Mrs. Meyer. Click here for the Pirate Video Club website.
