Elementary Activities Program

To be young means that everything is new and untried. Every experience is an opportunity for wonder. Every action can potentially be the beginning of a lifelong hobby, passion, or career. 

Our elementary activities program is designed to give children opportunities to engage in those things that they love and to try new things that they haven't even considered.

We want our students to have that BOOST, which helps them discover new things and compliments their classroom learning! We also want to offer a balance of options that stimulate the body, mind, and senses.

Every student has the opportunity to join two activities every afternoon, four days a week. Activities run in tri-mester sessions to give time for really learning and practicing a process, but variety enough to bring a holistic experience and keep things fresh for young active minds.

These are the BOOST activities currently being offered in grades K-5

*Activities are gauged to be age appropriate, with a focus for engagement and a 'positive experience'. Not every activity is available for every aged student.
