4H After School Clubs have been underway for 3 weeks now but it is not too late to join. We have lots of fun clubs you can join. We also have two homework help clubs which are geared towards helping students with their math homework or if they just need to stay at school to use a computer. One before school and one after school. This year the fee for clubs is $15 for the year. This will help to cover supplies for the clubs plus students will get a t-shirt! A registration form for the 2016-2017 school year also needs to be filled out and returned to Miss Ogden in room C-66. Students can pick up forms from Miss Ogden or from the front office. Here is a list of the clubs for fall:

 Monday (2:00-3:30)- Harry Potter Cooking Club

Tuesday (2:45-4:30)- Maker Club & Foods Club

Wednesday (2:45-4:30)- Robotics & Computer Coding

Thursday (2:45-4:30)- Wrestling Training & Pinterest
