    Soccer Club (Mr. Villamil: VillamilS@skokie69.net)

    Edison Pacers (Ms. Walker and Ms. Rossmann, WalkerS@skokie69.net or RossmannK@skokie69.net)
    Have you been sitting inside in front of a screen all day? Then come and enjoy some fun physical activity and fresh air with us. We will be running, walking and playing games, but also build friendships, develop team-building skills, and learn to relieve stress. At the end of the sessions, we will celebrate our growth and accomplishments with a 5k run at Edison School. This club will take place outdoors (weather permitting). Please dress appropriately for the weather.

    Code Explorers (Ms. Vigneri: VigneriM@skokie69.net)
    Students will learn how to code different robots, such as Ozobots and Spheros. We will start with the basics of how to code using scratch and extend to Project-Based Learning and simulations to create a one-of-a-kind coding club experience. This club will take place indoors within the Edison Learning Commons.
