Upper Grades Afterschool
Beyond the school day, we encourage students to sign up for at least one club and/or sports team. This year, we are instituting a $95 club/sports team fee per term, as the Upper Grades program is not funded through the city’s grant with Manhattan Youth or PSAL. This will be used to cover the cost of coaches, materials and working with external organizations. We have set aside the gym for Upper Grades sports teams from 7:30am–8:50am, as well Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:25pm–5:30pm. Tyler Spielberg, our Upper Grades Athletic Director, will share information about sports offered when school starts. Coaches will advise students of the practice schedules. Please note that the sports and clubs will not follow our AE rotating schedule. Rather, they will meet on one particular day of the week at a given time.
The Upper Grade clubs include, among others:
• Student Council
• Model UN
• The Clinton Post (newspaper)
• The Clinton Soup (literary and arts magazine)
• Mouse Squad (computer club)
• Sports clubs
In addition, students are participating in:
• The Whitney Arts Insights Program
• Internships with Manhattan Youth in our lower grades afterschool program.
• National Honor Society Chapter (will be later in the year)
