We are pleased to offer Dance Club led by Miss Tina Dushaj, Miss Elvisa Salkic and Miss Alana Vitale.This club will teach students basic dance moves, but more importantly about perseverence, friendship skills, cooperative learning skills, following directions, and leadership skills. These skills will build a strong foundation for our students.

Basketball Club

We are very happy to offer Basketball Club again this year. Mr. Bill Piscopink and Mr. Ed Youngs will be leading this club. Students will learn key basketball skills, but more importantly how handle conflict appropriately, the need to follow rules, cooperative learning skills and friendship skills. These skills will help our students for a life time.
