Clubs & Activities

A variety of clubs, sports, theatre, outdoor education, and other extra-curricular activities offers students numerous opportunities to explore a variety of interests, develop talents, practice leadership, and work together toward common goals. In place of a physical education class, Middle School students participate in activities and/or sports to end the day three times a week. The activities rotate each semester and have included chess, frisbee golf, cross country, volleyball, soccer, mountain biking, pickleball, and knitting.

Chess Club

Students of all ability levels, from beginners to those more advanced, are welcomed to join. Club participants will play for fun, but we also prepare our players for tournaments.

Le Club Français

Join the French Club to speak in French, learn French culture, and make new friends! No prior knowledge needed to join. Simply come an open mind to learn a new language and culture!


This club is for you if you like to challenge your knowledge about all things math, science, history, English, art, music, modern times, historical times, and more! There will be four competitions during the spring. The CSS Middle School team has been Black Forest champions at least five years in a row! Come join the fun! No prior experience is necessary.

Yearbook Club

Members of the Yearbook Club willmeet every week to learn photography, graphic design, and journalism skills. They will have the privilege of deciding what Middle School events & topics get coverage, as well as the responsibility of photographing events and gathering quotes for stories to include on the pages. Advanced students will help create pages in collaboration with the upper school yearbook staff and editors. This club will be a great foot-in-the-door for students interested in being yearbook staff or editors in high school.
