After School guide to Eastview

6th Grade at Eastview 
2016-2017 
After School Guide 

September, 2016 

Dear Parents/Guardians: 

An important part of the sixth grade experience is the potential to participate in a vast array of co-curricular activities.  The co-curricular (after-school) activities are a true extension of the school day and offer all students the opportunity to explore different areas of interest, to build relationships with other students, to develop school spirit and to have fun. 

The success of these after-school activities over the years has, in large part, hinged on the support of parents.  Sixth grade parents have always encouraged participation, provided extra transportation when needed and attended and applauded at every opportunity. 

The sixth grade campus provides bus transportation for bus students after school for those students who participate in all clubs, intramural sports and musical groups.  Those students participating in activities beyond 4:15 p.m. must provide their own transportation home.  

We created this guide to clearly indicate the range of after-school activities available to your child in the 2014-2015 school year and to provide specific information about each activity.  This should help with both guiding your child in his/her selection of activities and planning your child’s schedule. 

The sixth grade staff recognizes the value of these after-school activities and appreciates your involvement and support.  Please feel free to call if you have any questions or comments about our after-school programs. 

Sincerely, 

 Joseph Cloherty 

 

6th Campus at Eastview
