What Kinds of Sports Are Offered?

More than one third of our students typically participate in one or more of these activities.  This is a great way to get some exercise and get to know other students and their families!

Students who are not picked up immediately after sports practice will be taken to Bright Afternoons by the coaches. Parents may pick up these students at the Early Childhood Center front desk.
