After School Clubs

We LOVE that we have the opportunity for our students to be enriched in many opportunities after school here at Park!  On this page you will find information about upcoming clubs updated as the seasons change.

For all of our after school clubs, we do need to reach a MINIMUM of 5 students to be registered to run the club.  If we do not get enough students signed up by the deadline, we will either postpone the start date OR cancel the club and will refund the registration fee.

If you have any questions about our after school club offerings or have ideas, please contact Jen Henshue at
