Spell Bowl

We have a Primary Spell Bowl team for students in Grades 2 and 3 and an Intermediate Spell Bowl team for students in Grades 4 and 5. Each team is coached by building teachers and focuses on mastering grade appropriate spelling lists consisting of hundreds of words. Students are given a practice list, try-out, and are selected for the team based on their accuracy.

If chosen for the team, students can count on lots of extra time after school (both on-site and homework type practice) to practice in preparation for local and regional competitions. Our Spell Bowl teams are very competitive and the students really enjoy the camaraderie the experience provides and is a great introduction to academic teams.

Math Bowl

The Math Bowl team is coached by building teachers and focuses on mastering grade appropriate math and problem solving skills.  Students are encouraged to work a wide variety of problems in preparation for local and regional competitions.  As with Spell Bowl, the Math Bowl teams are a great introduction to the competitive academic team environment where students are pushed to study independently, outside of class time to achieve excellence in mathematics.

Running Club

Once the weather turns warm it means it is time for Running Club!  Our running club is available to students who are interested in training for The Annual Molly Dattilo 5K Run Walk and Elementary Races.  Held each year in May, local volunteer coaches, parents, and teachers help train students to compete in either a mile dash or 5K run.  Our school is always well represented and this is a great way to get active with your friends for a great cause.

Girls on the Run

As part of the Girls on the Run with King’s Daughters’ Health, this program is specifically geared for girls in grades 3 - 5.  This is an afterschool program focusing on creating strong, healthy young women by helping to educate them on positive emotional, mental, and physical life aspects and celebrating everything that makes them unique.  

After School Program

The Rykers’ Ridge After School Program is open on all student days after school until 5:30 p.m.  The cost is $40 per week for one child or $70 per week for two children.  Contact Julie Schmitt at 812-498-7894, 812-265-9698 or for additional information.
