To qualify for CTSWS, a student must have auditioned for Honor Choir and they must have excellent work ethic. CTSWS is a regional choir, made up of 4th-8th graders primarily throughout Canadian County. Students in CTSWS will rehearse every Monday afternoon starting late October until the performance in February. CTSWS members must be self-starters with a fair amount of discipline, as they will be expected to spend time learning their specific parts of music on their own. This choir will perform on Friday, February 23rd, 2024.

Mondays @ 3:15 - 4:30
Academic team is chosen based on tryouts, grades, and teacher feedback. Students meet weekly to practice and attend competitions a few times a year at other schools. They study material and answer questions on topics such as history, literature, science, math, pop culture, and current events. Students benefit from exposure to a broad range of school and cultural subjects, memorization and study skills, and an improved ability to cooperate and work in teams. Each competition features multiple rounds of two teams consisting of four players each. A moderator reads questions to the teams and students buzz in with their answers. Correct answers earn the team points and the opportunity to earn points from a bonus question. At the end of each competition, the top teams are awarded plaques. The teams with the highest scores can advance to upper level competitions. The team is open to both 5th and 6th graders, with tryouts occurring around the middle of September each year. Contact the Academic Team coach, Sara Clayton, with any questions or concerns.
