Department of Defense Education Activity

All after-school clubs and activities (i.e. jump rope, art, music, math, sports, etc.)will normally meet only on days that the school follows a full day schedule, NOT on early release days. There is no extra-curricular 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 sent to the parent 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, students will be notified through the school intercom system 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.


Fitness Club

The Patriot Fitness Club is an after school fitness club offered to students in grades 3-5. The goal of the fitness club is to encourage our students to lead an active lifestyle. This program focuses on fundamental movement and functional fitness. Each week, we will focus on a new component of fitness, a new movement and a nutrition tip to encourage healthy eating habits as well. Students are encouraged to use the skills they’ve learned not just at school, but even at home.
