This club is for students who want to go "above and beyond" the normal classroom expectations. Students are challenged to learn new and interesting tidbits of information.
The task is to learn about one of the listed topics and complete the challenges. Students can be a one star member or complete all the tasks at hand. After the first task is completed students automatically become a member of the Mastery Club. At the end of the school year students will receive a Mastery Club certificate for their accomplishments.
