What is "Activity Period?" In Middle School, there is an “Activity” class period each day devoted to clubs. These clubs are non-graded. A guide for such activities can be found here to help your son choose a club that may interest him. Most occur twice or three times a week, so in most cases, your son can be in two different clubs. Note: The only Middle School club that does not meet during this period is our Robotics Team.
Will my son get his Activity Period request? They are subject to availability, we try to give students his first or second choice. You’ll see which Activity he received when you view his course schedule in our school system, onCampus.
