All students are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular activities whether they be athletic, academic or social in nature. These activities help to shape students and prepare them for the future as part of a well-rounded education. At ZKES, extra-curricular activities are after-school clubs sponsored by staff members.
All after-school clubs, with the exception of Safety Patrol, will meet on Tuesdays from 1345 - 1445. Club sponsors will notify parents and students to exceptions to this schedule. It is the parents' responsibility to arrange for their child's transportation at the conclusion of each club session.
