"Spartan X-tra Online" Ends May 14th
 This certainly has been a "unique" spring semester and one that we won't forget any time soon
 I want to thank all the innovative after school staff and dedicated students for continuing to make Jr. Spartan X-tra a success, even in the face of great adversity.  
Enjoy your last week of clubs and we'll see you in the fall. 
Have a Most Amazing Summer!

Vidcode is announcing Virtual Coding Clubs for students (11 years old and up) who want to make amazing things with code. 

Clubs are drop-in and meet every Thursday at 2pm CST. 

Clubs are lead by Vidcode coding experts! 
Students join virtually and learn JavaScript programming with a new project each week. 
All students who sign up for this club will have full Vidcode access until the end of the school-year.
Come join in the fun yourself and invite your students to continue their learning (and parents too!).

About Junior Spartan X-tra

Junior Spartan X-tra is a program designed to offer students extended learning opportunities after school in a structured environment.
Clubs will be offered Monday-Thursday from 3:25-4:25 pm. There will be no clubs on Fridays and during certain times of the year. 

Club offerings are intended to expose students to a variety of activities not necessarily offered during the school day. Some clubs will be offered all year such as "Getting Crafty" and "Funky Fitness". Other clubs such as "Soccer" and "Outdoor Adventures" are offered seasonally. New clubs are continuously being developed based on student/staff input and sponsor availability.

A schedule and description of individual club activities is available on this website (upper left of home page) and in the 
Junior Spartan X-tra Slideshow found at this link:  http://bit.ly/32JOzCM

Daily club offerings can also be found on the Junior Spartan X-tra bulletin board & in the daily morning announcements.

Some clubs, such as "Robotics" and the "Junior Spartan Spirit Squad", require regular attendance each week throughout the year. These clubs are ongoing with activities that build upon each other, so a long term commitment is needed. Other clubs are set up with day to day activities. Students may attend these clubs during one or more sessions.

See the club description page for individual club information and commitment requirements. 

In order to participate in clubs, students must pay a $10 activity fee and bring their student identification badge to Jr. Spartan X-tra on the nights they attend. 
There is no prior sign-up needed. 
Just come and we'll take it from there! 

Students who forget their ID badges can go to Homework Help or they will need to call parents to get a ride home. ID badges are not needed for Homework Help and TRIO

Snacks and transportation will be provided nightly.  Students needing a ride home must sign in daily to ride the shuttle bus. The shuttle bus routes are different than normal bus routes. Call transportation to determine the stop closest to your home address. 

Students not riding the bus must be picked up in the BACK of the school by 4:30.   ~PLEASE DO NOT PICK UP IN THE FRONT LOT~
