Clubs

Lewis and Clark will offer several opportunities for students to participate in club activities this year.  Below you will find a description of the various clubs at Lewis and Clark along with a quick reference chart that lists the clubs by grade level.  All of the clubs listed below will meet before or after school.  It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to provide transportation for their child to or from Lewis and Clark on the day their club will meet.


It is important that students be on time for the scheduled activity in order to have a successful experience.   Three or more missed meetings may result in a child’s position being replaced.

Some clubs are limited to a particular grade level and offered on specific days at specific times. Please be sure to choose a club for your grade at times that do not conflict with your schedule. Please note the day and time clubs meet.  Students should arrive to school no more than 10 minutes before the club start time.  The final decision for club participation is left to the teacher and club sponsor.  Students are expected to keep up with their daily assignments and homework.   Click here for a copy of the sign up sheet that is due September 1st!
