Fitness club was established to provide students with the opportunity to better develop healthy exercise habits and choices in a fun and challenging atmosphere after school.
The physical education teacher, Ms. Stevens will be supervising students on certain Wednesdays each month starting in November each year and meeting a minimum of once a month until the end of the year. Students can choose between the various types of equipment & exercises in the weight room and, at times, participate in group fitness activities in the gym from 2:35 to 3:30pm. Tennis shoes are required and athletic attire is encouraged, but optional.
Students earn points for the amount and type of exercises they complete and are awarded for each level of achievement.
Opportunities to participate in community events that support and encourage a lifelong goal of fitness are included and promoted. Healthy and safe habits are learned and practiced through active participation.
Ms. Lisa Stevens is the advisor for Fitness Club.
The Soaring Times is the student newspaper founded and supervised by Mrs. Karen Lewis during the 2014—2015 school year.
A hard working group of 5th and 6th graders are chosen through an application process. Members of The Soaring Times are responsible for interviews, photography, editing and proofreading. They also assist in selling the newspaper during lunch.
Student Council is an extracurricular activity that promotes good citizenship and builds strong school spirit in a way that represents the ideas and interests of the student body. Selection takes place in the fall for all fifth and sixth grade students. Student Council members participate in events such as volunteering at the blood drive and Glass City Marathon, organizing the Holiday Canned Food Collection, and other activities that create an overall positive school community and generates lasting memories.
Mrs. Heidi Materni and Mrs. Mary McGill are the advisors for Student Council.
The yearbook staff is led by a dedicated group of fifth and sixth students who oversee the sales, design, photography, caption writing, editing, and production of the yearbook each year. Students are given tasks and asked to complete the tasks by an assigned deadline each month. They work together individually and as a team to capture the important moments of the school year. This enriches the students by allowing them to work in an area of interest, while teaching them responsibility and experience, which will later be necessary in their own lives. In the fall, interested students complete a rigorous five-step process to apply for yearbook staff positions.
Yearbooks are delivered near the end of May and are only $25 if pre-ordered by the end of December. The price increases to $30 after Christmas break. To purchase a yearbook online, visit www.jostensyearbooks.com and search for Eisenhower Intermediate.
Ms. Jackie Stanton is the advisor for Yearbook.
Youth to Youth
YOUTH TO YOUTH was founded in 1982 in Columbus, Ohio as a community-based drug prevention and youth leadership program focusing primarily on middle school and high school students. The goal of its many projects is harnessing the powerful influence of peer pressure-- making it a positive force that encourages young people to make positive life choices.
The Youth to Youth program at Eisenhower Intermediate School will meet a minimum of once a month after school for 45 minutes. To better prepare for and promote Red Ribbon Week, we will meet the first four weeks in October. We hope to incorporate community building activities as well as community service through outreach into the program.
Ms. Lisa Stevens and Mrs. Sheri Walters are the advisors for Youth to Youth.
