Beyond the Basics

Each day after school, the hallways of SMSA are filled with the chatter of children heading off to one of many available after-school activities. Through these activities – most of which take place right here in the comfort and safety of school – students have the opportunity to expand their horizons, make new friends, and learn new skills.

The current list of extracurricular activities includes:

  • Sports: Basketball, Soccer, Track

  • Sports “clinics” for younger grades

  • Ski Club

  • Odyssey of The Mind

  • Enrichment classes offered by faculty, staff and parents. Sample topics include: Clay Basics, Cooking, Study Skills, Building with Legos, and American Girls Learn About American History

  • Scouting

  • Battle of the Books

In addition to these after-school activities, a number of enrichment activities are incorporated into the school day, particularly in the 6th, 7th and 8th grades. These offerings include:

  • Junior Band, Senior Band and Jazz Band

  • Yearbook

  • Leadership Club
