After School Clubs - New Update about Signing Up

We are excited to host 16 after school clubs this year! We offer clubs 1st and 2nd semester as well as a few year long. Some clubs have small fees to help with supplies. Our clubs include Art Club, Book Club, Earth Club, STEM, Yoga, Running Club, Tae Kwon Do and more! Check out the club description catalog to learn about what clubs are offered at each grade level. (En Espanol)

Please fill out this Google Form if you want your child to join one or more of our clubs. The Google form was originally going to close on 9/15; however we have many clubs with low enrollment so we are leaving it open a few more weeks. You can pay for clubs, if there is a fee, through the PayForIt app. This fee will only show up if you have signed up on the Google form above. You can also send in cash or checks made out to Cherry Drive. If you send in/drop off cash or check please place it in a labeled envelope with your child's name. (Click here for PayforIt instructions)

Here is a calendar with all the club dates to help parents keep track of when clubs are meeting throughout the year. We recommend you saving or printing this document. We look forward to offering lots of enrichment opportunities for our students!
