Clubs & Organizations

Cassingham Clubs

Students may participate in a number of clubs each year at Cassingham Elementary.  Most clubs meet during lunch hours or after school.  Clubs are announced on Cassingham Cub News. 

Elementary Theatre
Ms. Rhinehart
This Bexley City Schools theatre program, for students in grades 1 through 5, produces drama workshops and a play each year. The workshops for grades 1 - 2 are intended to improve basic acting and social skills, foster creativity and creative learning, and help develop literacy. Trained high school student "staffers" work with the elementary students, playing theatre games, writing short skits, creating plays and enacting real theatre works. Students in grades 3-5 are involved in an elementary school musical produced in the fall and an elementary school play produced in the spring.  Elementary students have the opportunity to participate in crew as well.  The overall goal is to teach theatre basics in a fun, learning environment.
