The Tritt Broadcast Crew is in charge of producing the morning announcements. The morning announcements are broadcast live to the classrooms every morning. The fifth graders who would like to participate meet on Mondays after school (either during 1st Semester or 2nd Semester) to work on their script and practice their morning broadcast. Each member is assigned to a day and job (anchor, birthdays, lunch, weather, video producer, etc.). Interested 5th graders can apply for Broadcast Crew in the Fall.
Tiger Chorus is open to all 4th and 5th graders. This ensemble rehearses Tuesday and Thursday mornings under the direction of Mrs. Yunek. Students develop musicianship through unison singing and beginning part-singing. The chorus performs at concerts and events throughout the school year. Regular attendance and a commitment to the group is expected. See Mrs. Yunek's website to sign up at the beginning of the school year.
Tritt’s Math Team thinks outside the box to solve problems using critical and creative thinking. They participate in the Elementary Math Olympiad throughout the school year to form a small group that attends the Cobb County Math Tournament. 4th and 5th graders welcome!
Each year in January, Tritt takes a group of ten fourth and fifth grade students to the Cobb County Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl Competition. The "bowl" is a competition between schools and uses questions from the Georgia Childrens’ Book Award nominees in a quiz bowl-like format. In preparation for the Reading Bowl the students read the books on the list and create questions to quiz each other at our weekly book club meetings. The list of books for 2018-2019 can be found here. Contact Media Specialist Joanne Bates for more information. Joanne.firstname.lastname@example.org

This interscholastic, rigorous, academically based, competitive club is made up of highly motivated 4th and 5th graders that takes advantage of the natural curiosity of each child and allows for in-depth, hands-on experiences that emphasizes problem-solving, collaboration, and promotes engaging science and STEM based activities in biology, earth science, chemistry, physics, and technology. http://mrsterristone.weebly.com/science-olympiad
This Is a non-profit girl-only club for grades 3rd-5th that encourages self-esteem and running. The club meets weekly, talks about current issues the girls are having, encourages positive communication, as well as the growth mindset towards running and gaining stamina. Each girl is different so we encourage them to set goals and grow as a runner and use a positive attitude towards themselves and peers. This is not a FAST class, nor is it incorporated in the FAST calendar. Information is sent out through the weekly parent blast to sign your girls up.
Sponsored by Courtney Pascual and Charis Swift, the yearbook club engages 4th and 5th grade students in every aspect of production. From marketing to photography to writing copy, students will work together to produce this yearly snapshot of life at Tritt Elementary.
