M.C. Perry ES: School Activities

All students are encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities whether they be academic or social in nature. These activities help to shape students and prepare them for lifelong success and part of a well-rounded education. Our School offers many activities for students to choose from.

Students must leave campus after school dismissal unless they have parent permission to remain on campus for after school activities and clubs. Students can sign-up for after school activities one once per semester, usually in September and in late January. Competition for extracurricular activity spots is stiff. Although we try to accommodate as many students as possible, the earlier you get your child's application submitted is better. However, students recommended by teachers as needing academic tutoring will take precedence.
