Robotics
(4th-6th)

Robotics is an exciting after school, co-curricular program where students  build a functioning robot out of Lego pieces that can be computer programmed to maneuver across a playing field while performing multiple missions. Each year, a specific theme is generated by the F.I.R.S.T. Lego League.  Teams have eight weeks to set up their table elements (competition course) and design their robot to successfully maneuver the field within a two and a half minute period of time.  At the end of the 8 week program, teams compete their "Bots" against other Robots in area and state competitions.  Teams compete in three rounds each. Each completed mission awards the team points.  The round that scores the team's most points is their competition round.

Through Robotics, students learn programming language, basic physics, and engineering principles, sportsmanship, team cooperation, critical thinking, and problem solving skills.

Oral Interpretation
(5th-6th)

Group:
Group oral interpretation is a choral recitation of a poem or story.  The group of children, 5th-6th graders, learn creative movement to enhance the delivery of the often humorous story.  The performance has taken place the last few years at Clark’s Mercedes Edwards Theater in February.  

Everyone interested in joining is welcome.  All the children learn the appreciation of literature interpretation, oral language and the skills it requires, and working together as a group.  They also have a lot of fun along the way.  Rehearsals are typically held before school.  Scripts are distributed in the month of November.

Peer Counseling
(5th-6th)

Peer Counseling is a dynamic program in which students help their schoolmates solve problems or disputes.  The mediators, who are students in grades 5 & 6, are trained in problem solving strategies.  Using questioning techniques, the mediators guide the disputants through the problem with the hopes that a resolution will be the end result.  

Students who are interested in this program fill out applications. This is a one-year commitment and students patrol various lunch recesses.

GATE

The Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) Program in Clovis Unified is designed to provide special enrichment for students who have demonstrated exceptional abilities and whose educational needs may not be fully met without modifications of the regular instructional program.  Each of the District's schools plans and implements its own GATE program according to the needs of its students.

The gifted child's educational needs are met in the regular classroom on an as-needed, daily basis.  Century will no longer be supporting an early morning pull-out program.  

GATE certification at Century begins in 4th grade and the criteria is:
~ 95%ile in both Language Arts and Math on the California Standards Test, or 
~ 98%ile on the district-administered Otis-Lennon Intelligence Test, or

Scores of ALL students are analyzed at the beginning of each school year; parents will be notified in September if their child has met the above stated certification requirements

Student Council is a great way for upper graders to get involved with student government. Elections are held twice a year. A student may hold office one semester per year. During the student council term, elected officers help in various ways. Whether it is planning school activities, promoting Character Counts, assisting teachers and administration, or inspecting and keeping our campus safe, our student leadership is having fun.
