Lower School Clubs and Activities
Students have wonderful opportunities to explore various clubs at the elementary level. Throughout the educational process, students are often instructed on what they need to learn. Clubs allow students to make choices in areas in which they would like to further interest. Fourth and 5th grade students are afforded the opportunity to further their knowledge in the areas of art, music or drama. Equally, there are opportunities to delve into robotics, engineering, or chess. The topics may vary each year, but the excitement of “choosing” is always the highlight of our Lower School clubs.
