Clubs & Activities

From a young age, students’ interests and passions emerge. Several clubs and activities are offered through the school to encourage exploration and curiosity. There is also beneficial social and emotional growth witnessed by students who engage in extracurricular activities. In addition to the opportunities outlined below, many students participate in sports, dance, theatre, music, art, and enrichment classes beyond the school.

Battle of the Books

The mission of the Pikes Peak Region Battle of the Books is to foster a love of reading by encouraging students to read challenging, quality literature written by a variety of authors in multiple genres. Fourth and 5th-grade student groups read 40 titles. A team of 5th graders represents the school in the spring at Colorado College to answer questions about the books. This club meets once a week during lunch and recess.
