Socialization at Great Minds Virtual is a key component of the student experience each day. One of the questions we get asked most frequently is about the kinds of clubs offered for our students. Each term, students choose a new club based on their interests and attend that club meeting on Fridays. We also provide new clubs each term based on recommendations from our students! Here is some information about the clubs students have enjoyed at Great Minds Virtual so far.
Come and get artsy with us! Each week we will explore new forms of expression to channel our inner inventiveness. Artful Hearts will be a place to freely practice the arts in unique ways while developing bonds within our school community. As we let our imaginations run wild, we will explore diverse avenues of enrichment to compile a portfolio that will showcase our individual artistic beauty.
Get ready to learn how to grow your own food in your own backyard! Even if you don’t have a traditional backyard with space for a garden, you will only need a few small planters, soil, and seeds to get started. This is a great time of year to start plants indoors, too! You will be empowered to use the scientific model to encourage sustainable, healthy, affordable food alternatives.
Breathe In🧘Breathe Out
Come slow down with us! We’ll stretch and practice yoga, learn how our brains work, keep a journal of our thinking, and learn how to just sit and breathe. A great club for people who think a lot and want to give their racing minds a break!
Cards for Kindness💌
Cards are more than just a nice gift. They impact everyone involved. Join us as we partner with “Cards for a Cause” to support children who are experiencing a challenging time. Together, we will create encouraging homemade cards for disheartened, hospitalized, and/or seriously ill children. You have the power to bring hope and uplift the spirits of a child during their difficult time. If you have artful designs, encouraging quotes, or kind messages to share, “Cards for a Cause” club is for you!
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
Join us in Creative Writing for journaling, listening, reading, investigating and sharing our written and spoken words!
We’ll look very closely at our environment, paying attention to the minutiae that we normally filter. From the observations we’ll create and share experience maps with the group. We’ll learn more about ourselves, each other, and our world!
Fitness & Health 🏋️
What does being fit mean to you? In this club we will explore the basics behind what it means to be physically fit. Learn how your body functions; learn the complex science behind exercise; explore what it means to be mindful and what inspires you, and determine how you can test your current level of fitness!
