Activities Before and After School

Joining the Math Team is a great way to challenge your math skills and have fun doing math problems in a group. The Math Team competes with other schools throughout the school year. Students work as a team and individuals on challenging math problems. The first five competitions are part of the Minnesota Junior High Math League. The final competition is the MathCounts Competition; students may qualify for the state and national competition.

Snowriders is an intramural after school activity designed for students who like to or want to learn how to ski or snowboard. There are options for all levels of skill, from beginner to advanced, with lessons for the student who has never been on the snow to advanced skill building for skiers and boarders. It is a great opportunity for students to socialize with other students who share their hobby. Snowriders is not a competitive sport, which allows for a relaxed attitude and good, clean fun! A snack is served after lessons are completed for those that take them and all others at about 5 p.m. There is no lack of energy in this group - it is a great way to use all the energy we know middle schoolers have!
