Student Life: Elementary


Each day at recess and lunch, students have the option of participating in a variety of clubs. Each focus on physical activity, the arts, or general games. Clubs provide structured recreation time and help to develop friendships and social skills.  Clubs rotate each day and include Intramural sports, Arts and Crafts, Wii Dance party, Construction Club (Lego, K’Nex, models…)  and classroom games. Something for everyone to have a fun recess!
