In addition to our regular curriculum, we have expanded opportunities for students to engage in after-school enrichment activities. The following programs are offered throughout the year.
MSMA and the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences partnered for a unique opportunity. Students from their pharmacy program led the students from grades 4,5, and 6 in experiments to show chemical and physical changes of matter, liquid density, physics and engineering, and the polarity of molecules. The scientists from MCPHS taught the students proper lab procedures and safety. The twelve MSMA students who participated in the Science Club also constructed their own experiments which will be presented to the school during January.
Lego Club: If any parents would like to volunteer and supervise children playing and building with the legos, please see Mrs. Maureen
Ski and Snowboard Club:
This 6 week ski and snowboard program is offered at McIntyre Ski Area.
We continue to promote healthy living by promoting an active lifestyle for children. Gym Jam gives students an opportunity to engage in physical activities with friends after school Students play their favorite games once a week for an hour after school. Children should bring a change of clothes and a snack and labeled water bottle.
Aftercare children will be brought down to the cafeteria after the children are dismissed. This program is open to pre-k to grade 3 students. Parent volunteers are welcome to help.
Running Club is held weekly for the students in grades 4-6. You meet in the gym and everyone runs according to their own pace. We offer a fall and spring program.

We also have a Grade 5 and Grade 6 Boys Team and depending on the number of girls who want to play, we can either have separate teams or both grades join together. Practices are held twice a week and games are played on the weekends.
