Clubs

Clubs are for any student interested in being involved in a variety of after school activities. Clubs may last for a few months or the entire school year. Clubs are open to students in all grades except where noted. Most clubs meet after school from 2:40pm - 4:10pm.

The student activity fee for the school year covers all school-sponsored extra-curricular activities in the middle schools, not including athletics. The fee is $60 per student per year, not including drama; if the student also participates in drama, the fee is $100. This annual fee allows a student to participate in an unlimited number of activities.

for more information and ways to pay the fee, please go to the district's Fee Payment and Waiver Information Page.

All activities are supervised by teachers. Information about clubs are posted in the cafeteria, throughout the walls of the school, and on our morning announcement show. Schedules and upcoming clubs will also be posted on this website. At times an activity may be canceled. Students need to listen to announcements so that they know when an activity is being canceled.

The creation of new clubs are always encouraged. Day prides itself that students are empowered to create clubs to help them and others create a stronger community with in our school. To create a club there needs to be a minimum of five students and a teacher advisor. Students can contact us in person or via email if they need help finding an advisor or getting the word out to students.

If you have any questions please contact co-Triple E Directors Andy Comings and Mark Murphy: day_triple_e@newton.k12.ma.us

Club advisors can also answer specific questions about their clubs.
