Student Activities

Girls on the Run is an after school program offered here at Erdenheim for girls in grades 3-5. During this program, life skills are taught through interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls participating in a 5k running event.  The goals of the program are to build confidence while establishing a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness.

The Peer Assistant Leadership class is a school-based program that started in Erdenheim eight years ago. Students who are interested in participating in this program must complete an application, participate in an interview and receive recommendations from staff members.

Once selected, our Peer Leaders are trained in a research-based conflict resolution program. After successfully completing the training program, Peer Leaders have the opportunity to help other students work through conflicts that arise during recess, on the bus, in the classroom and or in the cafeteria. These conflicts can include, arguments, gossip, and rumors, teasing, perceived bullying, etc. During a peer mediation session, our Peer Leaders help students brainstorm possible solutions, and reach an agreement that will put everyone involved in a win-win situation.

In addition, to solving conflicts, Peer Leaders act as peer mentors, give classroom presentations, plan and implement school-wide assemblies, create a PSSA motivational video and participate in community events.

The Reading Olympics program encourages students to read and gives them the opportunity to compete on a team in an academic activity. Students prepare for the competition that is held each spring by reading from a list of forty-five books. Meetings are after school once a month in October, November, and December, then twice a month in January, February and March. More information is available on the Library Reading Olymics Page

The 5th Grade Spirit Squad is comprised of students who exhibit a surplus of School Spirit!

The Squad loves to add fun and spirit to our building, and is always available to help out in any way with any school activity!
