Chess Club (3rd-5th)

Description: Chess is a game that promotes critical thinking and processing skills. It encourages students to use logical deductive reasoning to solve problems and increases concentration.

Mulberry Student Ambassadors
Mulberry Elementary School Student Ambassadors are 5th grade student leaders who have been selected to assist staff in welcoming students and guests into our school and ensuring their safety and comfort. These students show leadership skills and act as role models for other students in our school. Ambassadors are chosen at the end of the 4th grade. In order to be considered for selection, students must fill out an application form, which includes a short essay. Students are chosen based on current leadership skills as observed by their teachers as well as those who show the potential and motivation to develop and strengthen their skills as leaders during the year.
The responsibilities of Mulberry Student Ambassadors include but are not limited to:
- Safety Patrols – Students will serve as Safety Patrols during arrival and dismissal every morning and afternoon, helping faculty and staff ensure that all students are safe during those times.
- Peer Leaders - During special school events, students will serve as a welcoming presence at Mulberry, providing directions and support to our guests, faculty and staff. Peer Leaders will also provide support to teachers during dismissal.
