Chinese Board Game Club
The games that students will be learning and perfecting are Gobang (Five in a Row), and Mahjong! Gobang is easy and interesting to learn, not only to enhance thinking ability, improve intelligence, but also rich in philosophy and help to self-cultivation.  It develops the habit of being able to calm, and improve the attention time as well.  Gobang is a kind of pure strategy type of chess game for two people to play, and originated from one of the Chinese traditional kinds of Othello, developed in Japan (Gomoku) and popular in Europe and America. It is easy to play, suitable for people of all ages, amusing and fascinating. Mahjong is a tile game with a rich history of journeying across multiple variations of the game before finally becoming static as a sport of intense strategy and skill. Mahjong doesn’t just entertain the players, brings them closer, and maintains peace, but also has benefits for the overall mental health of a person.

Handchime Choir Club
This choir will consist of 8 to 11 members from third grade to eighth grade. Unlike an orchestra or voice choir in which each musician is responsible for one line of the music, a handchime ensemble acts as one instrument, with each musician responsible for particular notes, sounding his or her assigned bells (chimes) whenever that note occurs. Therapeutic benefits include social interaction, cognitive benefits, and physical benefits. The handchime choir will also provide an outlet for emotional and musical expression. The students will learn to contribute to the group as a whole. No prior musical experience or ability to read music is required. Students will learn how to read music by playing and exploring this magnificent instrument!
