After School Clubs K-5th

Because There’s Still More We Want to Explore!

Clubs are a great way to make friends with students from other classes. It’s a way to explore new topics in a deeper way, often in teams. Each club is run by one of our educators. We have a variety of clubs that students three years of age through high school are able to join. Nominal fees are charged per club activity. All clubs meet for one hour a week. Some examples of clubs we rotate throughout the year include:

  • Building Club — challenge your lego mind, move into mixed materials for construction, test height and weight limits and more
  • Coding Club — learn to program software using, Scratch, Alice, and more
  • Cooking Club — Get your inner celebrity chef wanna-be ready to have some fun. We explore food from all parts of the world and the stories behind it. We learn hands-on techniques in our fully equipped kitchen.
  • Sports Club — Challenge the faculty on a game of hoops, spike some volleyballs, shoot for the goal, or bring your best ping pong paddles. Game On!
  • Outdoor Club — Learn to make a fire, go fishing, pitch a tent. The Nature Center is just across the street with lots of adventures in store.
  • Arts & Literacy Club — Explore new stories, worlds, and adventures together with friends.
  • Academic Readiness Club — Just the time to get that extra help your student might need to make transitions.
