Andersen ES: School Activities

All students are encouraged to participate in co-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. Andersen ES offers many activities for students to choose from.

After school clubs and activities (i.e. jump rope, art, music, math, culture, etc.) will normally occur daily except for Tuesday. There is no extracurricular activity bus for students who participate in these activities. Parents whose child frequently rides a bus must make transportation and/or other arrangements for the student to be picked up from school following the activity. Notification of these activities will be published in the parent newsletter along with the day and time of the activity. In addition, due to unforeseen training, meetings, or teacher absences, an activity may be canceled without advanced notice. The sponsoring teacher will endeavor to notify students and parents of the canceled activity if time permits. If the activity is canceled at the last minute, we will notify students via the school intercom system at the end of the instructional day.
