EXTRACURRICULARS

AFTERNOON SPORTS & ENRICHMENT ACTIVITIES

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 including Tap/Ballet, Soccer Champs, Mini Motor Magic, Rising Readers, or Reading Rockstar classes, you must register with the company or individuals managing the programs. Information and email links to register are included below along with general information and forms. 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.
