Don’t underestimate the importance of having fun participating in school activities. Some of the best times and memories students have are the experiences of belonging to a club or participating in an after school activity. Clubs and activities are important to join just for the enjoyment that they will bring to most students, but they also allow the students to more easily make friends because the groups are small and they get to be themselves!

Clubs and activities provide students with many positive experiences that help them to become well-rounded individuals who are ready for college or the workplace. It helps students to become active in their school and to feel a connection the school and to others. It provides a sense of pride and school spirit and it is a positive influence on our youth today.

There is something for everyone! Get involved!

Fourth and fifth graders have the opportunity to be in our Safety Patrol program. Our Safety Patrols play an important role each morning at our school. Their presence in the car loop, bus loop, and hallways insures that our students come into the building safely. They are always there to lend a helping hand, give a friendly smile and greeting, and remind others of important safety rules.
