Drama Club is for 4th and 5th grade leaders that have a love for singing, dancing, and acting. These student leaders practice every Thursday morning and lead assemblies throughout the year teaching the COH students about the 7 Habits of Happy Kids!
A group of our 5th graders are in charge of the recycling club at C.O. every year. Staff and students are dedicated to recycling paper in their room or area of the building. Once a week, our recyclers collect all the recycling in the building and take it outside to the large collection bin which raises money for the school.
The Girl Scout and Boy Scout organizations are active at C.O. Harrison. They provide learning experiences, community service opportunities, and social events for our students. Both programs emphasize character, leadership, and a personal commitment to making our world a better place.
Student Council at C.O. Harrison is a group of fourth and fifth graders who work together to establish a positive learning community rich with school spirit. Student Council involves students in sharing ideas to make our school better, as we learn to work together. Currently we are collecting pop tabs to donate on behalf of a community member and we have implemented a school-wide paper recycling program.
The “C.O. Harrison Singing Colonels”, C.O. Harrison’s 4th and 5th grade choir meets on Mondays from 3:45-4:30. It is open to all 4th and 5th grade students. Students sing a wide variety of music. Students are welcome to join the choir at any point in the school year. We always welcome new singers! For more information please contact Mr. Shea.
Band and Orchestra
Our 5th Grade Band is directed by Mrs. Schoenhoeft, and our 5th Grade Orchestra is directed by Mr. Shea. These groups of musically-talented students meet during the school day and present evening concerts twice a year.
Each year, multiple Destination Imagination teams represent our school well in local and regional competitions. One of our teams even had the honor of traveling to the global competition in Tennessee 4 years ago!
“Destination ImagiNation allows participants of all ages to access their creativity, learn problem-solving skills, and experience successful teamwork strategies as they develop unique solutions to challenges. In Destination ImagiNation, two- to seven-member teams focus on finding solutions to two separate types of Challenges: Team Challenges and Instant Challenges. Then they present their solutions to appraisers in tournament-style settings. By working together to develop solutions, participants push the limits of their imaginations to better themselves and best their competition.” (This description as well as additional information can be found on the DI website at http://www.idodi.org
