Clubs & Activities


Computer Club

This fifth grade club meets several times a month before or after school to explore new ways of using technology to support their classroom experience.

Battle of the Books

Students in fourth and fifth grade read books from a list comprised by the public library and compete for selection to the team that represents the school in a city-wide competition. Students are expected to know details from the books and be able to quickly answer questions developed by the library staff. SAES has a winning tradition, competing against area public and private elementary schools.
