Pike County Elementary School offers a variety of clubs for our students to participate in. Students are encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities. Our clubs include art club, acting club, chorus club, lego league, good news club, jr. beta club, sign language club, and trailblazers running club.
Trailblazers Running Club meets after school for 4th and 5th grade students at PCES. The Trailblazers Running Club is a running enrichment program that not only is a running club but a club of elite students that show both academics and behavioral responsibilities in the classroom. Trailblazers consist of teacher recommended students. Our runners are held to responsibilities including running on their own and at practice, along with maintaining good grades and leadership qualities in the classroom. We teach sportsmanship and good healthy habits while giving them a love of running to share others.
Jr. Beta Club meets after school for 5th grade students at PCES. The purpose of Junior Beta is to recognize and honor students demonstrating high academic achievement, character, service and leadership. Beta Club follows prestigious eligibility guidelines and students will be invited to join based on their academic achievements and teacher recommendation. Once invitations are sent, a ceremony will be held to induct students who choose to join.
Good News Club meets after school for all students at PCES. This club is led by Harp’s Crossing Baptist Church at Hollonville. The purpose is to offer a Christian program for 5-to-12-year-old children featuring Bible lessons, songs, memorize verses, and games. It is the leading ministry of Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF), which creates the curriculum, translates it into different languages for use around the world, and trains instructors to teach it.

Chorus Club meets after school for the 4th and 5th grade students at PCES. The purpose of our Chorus Club is to give 4th and 5th grade students an extended opportunity to participate as a group working together to display their singing ability as well as extend their appreciation for music. The Chorus Club will present chorus concerts for PTO programs and for special events throughout the year.
Pike County Elementary School’s acting club is a school activity in which students learn the basics of stagecraft – self-discipline, movement, memorization, enunciation, and voice projection, as well as the significances of hard work, creativity, imaginative play, listening and observation skills, and self-confidence. They are given opportunities to shine in the spotlight or even stand behind it as stage crew members, sound and lighting technicians or opt for a role as set designer, make-up artist, or costume and props team members. The diverse students in our Acting Club enjoy the rewards that come with working together to achieve common goals.
Sponsored by our art teacher Kathy Harper, this club offers an opportunity to further explore individual art skills, as well as an outlet for improving the aesthetics of the school environment by doing cooperative projects. Art club is a wonderful opportunity for students to assist with community projects and art shows.
