AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES & CLUBS

The Following are clubs that have been offered in the past and MAY be offered this year. A finalized list of clubs will be posted after school is in session.

Clubs are set up during academic quarters (some clubs may run for one quarter, others may run for the entire school year.)
All clubs are based on student interest and staff availability.

To sign up for a club, the student must go to the first club meeting. At this meeting the students will

In this club, we practice answering questions about all the subject areas, rapidly and accurately, using KMO and Thinking Cap software. We compete against many other schools twice a year, regionally in November and nationally in April, in Thinking Cap Quiz Bowls, in the 6th grade division and the 7-8th grade division. We compete at Forsythe during the school day, through the magic of the internet; we never see the other teams.
