Clubs

After-School Clubs

We are pleased to offer our Mt. Harmony Elementary students the following after-school clubs. Our clubs provide students an opportunity to extend their learning beyond the regular school hours. Clubs at MHES will run quarterly, and there is a $25 club fee for each club per quarter. The fee will allow us to purchase club materials, snacks, and to pay our sponsors. Any money that is left over after paying club expenses will be deposited into our school activity fund, and will be used to purchase instructional materials for students.

To register for a club, please complete and return the registration form to their homeroom teacher no later than October 27th. Some clubs are capped at a certain number of students. If your child is not selected for a club in the current quarter, they will have priority for clubs in a future quarter. Your child will be notified by November 3rd, if they are chosen for a 2nd Quarter club.
