The Student Activities program represents a key component of the middle school curriculum. Activities focus on the development of social and physical skills and provide a wide range of activities that are based upon the interests and physical needs of middle school students.
All students who plan to stay for an after-school activity will need to pay a one-time “Activity Fee” of $20. The activity fee is $10 for students who qualify for free or reduced-price meals. To pay fees online, please access the www.myschoolbucks.com portal.
Activity days and times are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 3:10-4:00 beginning September 5th. Bus transportation is provided to students eligible for regular bus services.
Every morning, an email will be sent to students with the activities for the day. Students must sign-up by 1pm in order to attend an after-school activity. Your student can find the activity calendar on NKMS' website (www.kirkwoodschools.org/nkms) to plan ahead.
Some examples of activities we will offer this year: Intramurals like basketball, volleyball, and soccer, Art Club, Books and Board Games Club, and academic labs to help your students stay on top of their work.
Students can create clubs, too! They just need to find other kids who want to join and an adult to sponsor. If they can't find a sponsor but want to start a club, they should talk with their counselor. Many of our most popular clubs have been student-created!
Students can attend one or all of the days an activity is offered. With only a few exceptions (like 8th grade basketball or a closed team like Robotics), all activities are open to any student.
The activities calendar is published on our website and is highlighted in every Wednesday newsletter.
