Opportunities for your child to get involved
Rice Lake scholars interested in learning chess in a fun and welcoming environment can join our Chess Club. Your child will learn the rules of the game; understand how to play strategically; and participate in matches with peers.
For more than 50 years, the District 279 Children's Chorus has provided a high quality vocal music experience for elementary students, as well as extraordinary performances for the community. District 279 Chorus members demonstrate high vocal music skills relative to others of their age, experience or environment.
The chorus has approximately 100 members representing all of the elementary schools in our district. Every fall, students in grades 4 and 5 may audition to join the chorus.
Students in fifth grade can participate in the school band or orchestra. Lessons begin in October each year and students are expected to practice 4-5 times per week on their own.
We provide opportunities for students to experience the joy of music as part of our Rice Lake Elementary Fifth Grade Chorus.
Rice Lake TV provides news, announcements and updates to our school community. Students help write, produce and deliver the news each day.
As part of our Safety Patrol team, students play an integral role in keeping students, staff and families safe during arrival and dismissal each day.
