Clubs & Activities

After school clubs normally meet only on full schedule school days. Clubs do not meet on early release Wednesdays or on unscheduled early release (inclement weather) days. Parents must arrange for their child(ren) to be picked up from school at the end of the activity. Repeated late pickups may result in a child being deemed ineligible to participate in an after school club or activity. Notification of these events will be sent home along dates and times of the activity. In addition, due to occasional unforeseen training, meetings, or teacher absences, a club or activity may be canceled without advanced notice. The sponsoring teacher will attempt to notify students and parents of the canceled activity if time permits. If the activity is canceled at the last minute, students will be notified at the end of the instructional day.

 

Sponsors of clubs and extracurricular activities determine academic and behavioral (disciplinary) requirements that students must meet to participate in school sponsored extracurricular activities or to hold a leadership position in a curriculum-related club, team or student organization.

Robotics
  • Eligibility: 3rd- 5th Grades -   Pre-selected Students
  • Teacher/Sponsor:   Mr. Kelley & Ms. S. Collins
  • Meetings:  Tuesdays & Thursdays, afterschool

Students participating in this club will have the opportunity to experience the world of robotics, by learning how to design, build, and program robots, using Lego NXT systems. Students will also learn how to work cooperatively with team coaches and their peers. As students expand their knowledge, the club will eventually attend local and regional competitions. By the end of school year, students will have a greater understanding about robots and what makes them tick. Robotics is open to EVERYONE, and we encourage all interested students to apply.

Participants will be contacted by the club sponsors.

 


Gotta Keep Reading
  • Eligibility: 3rd - 5th Grades -  All Students and Parents!
  • Teacher/Sponsor:   Ms. Cravotta, Information Specialist
  • Meetings:  Daily Afterschool

We are open on Wednesdays until 2:30 p.m. and on all other days until 3:45p.m. Parents and children are encouraged to visit us often to read together, select and check out books, have children do Reading Counts quizzes, use our many digital resources that DoDEA has paid for all students to use and do any of our 20 learning activities.

At dismissal time, parents pick up your child or children in front of the school from their classroom teacher and come to the side door of the Information Center. This door will be open. You are to come directly into the Information Center and not go through the main school door. Since it is after school, you do not need to sign in at the school office. Students may not enter without a parent.

Younger children are welcome as long as parents keep their younger children physically with them at all times.

Parents may check out up to 10 books at a time. In order to check out books, stop by our Information Center to fill out a form. It will take us 24 hours to open your account and get you in our system.
