Clubs & Activities
After-school clubs and enrichment opportunities offered at Chesnut vary from year to year depending on student interest, as well as teacher and parent support. Parents with a particular expertise or interest in any after-school clubs are urged to get involved. Information on clubs and classes will be sent home via the Cougar Courier during the school year. If you want to start a new after-school group, you must contact the Principal for approval.
Note: School-Sponsored vs. Third Party Clubs/Activities
Sponsored clubs are approved by the Principal and managed by Chesnut parents or staff. A Chesnut staff member will always be present during meetings of these clubs. Third party clubs are also approved by the Principal, but are not run or directly supervised by any Chesnut staff member.
Check each club for more information, including meet times, availability (some clubs have limited spaces), and contact information.
NOTE: Updated information for 2013-14 Clubs and Activities will be available at Curriculum Night. Check the website for new information, schedules, and contact names.
