EXTRACURRICULARS

AFTERNOON SPORTS & ACTIVITIES

General Information:

We are pleased we are able to offer extracurricular activities during lunch bunch and extended day this school year. If your child is taking advantage of our extra activities such as ballet, soccer, tennis, or reading rockstar classes, you must register with the company. Information and email links to register are included below along with some information and attachments. 

Please read through to see what we are offering.

 

Please note: your child does not have to participate in extracurricular activities to be part of lunch bunch or the extended day. We bring these extras to you, so you don't have to travel Atlanta. If you choose to take advantage of lunch bunch or extended day without enrolling in extracurricular activities, our children eat lunch or snack, play in the classrooms and go to the playground.

"Up4Tennis' approach to teaching young children is to teach it in a way that makes learning fun and relevant to the way kids see the world. In addition, all activities and concepts progressively build upon each other to make sure the concepts are easy to grasp for the age of the child and they feel good about their progress. This means students build their self-esteem with each lesson which leads to maximum learning and kids who want to keep playing tennis.

"We follow an effective class format and simplify concepts so students progress with each lesson. Up4Tennis breaks down the fundamentals of learning tennis into simple core motions that lead to a more controlled and consistent shot and strong fundamental technique that lays the foundation for a further tennis advancement."​
