Thanks to the generosity of our PTA we are able to offer after school clubs again this year. These extra-curricular activities are being sponsored by teachers. Below is information on each club. It also indicates specific meeting days for each club. Some clubs will be meeting on the same day and at the same time. STUDENTS WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO BE IN TWO DIFFERENT CLUBS MEETING ON THE SAME DAY. Parents are responsible for providing transportation home after clubs. Children in our Extended Day Program may participate in clubs. They must always report to Extended Day first in order to check in and then report to their club. When the club is dismissed, they will then report back to the Extended Day Program. Clubs will begin in early October. All clubs dismiss at 3:00 pm- please use the West parent pick-up loop.
