CLARK—In an ongoing effort to improve their school, parents, teachers and alumni have pulled together to bring new clubs to the already progressive school.
Starting this afternoon, a Technology Club will be offered free as an after school club to students in grades 4-8, running every other week until the end of May. In addition, a Technology Club for the younger students is currently in its early planning stages and will be offered once a month.
Other clubs that are in the planning stages include a Book Club, Drama Club and Science Club. Currently, students participate in after school student government, yoga, music lessons and a before- and after-care program at a nominal hourly charge; to be expanded as well.
“The students will be working on projects like building their own computer,” said Mr. Craven, who will supervise the club. “It will be a fun activity and also a great lesson that expands outside the classroom.”
Currently, St. Agnes School is holding open houses to educate the community of the school. The next scheduled open house will be held on March 10 from 7-9 p.m. In addition, parents are available to conduct private tours and answer questions at the request of potential students and their families.
To ensure longevity of the school, parents have also formed a non-profit organization, “Save St. Agnes School, Inc.” To date more than $80,000 has been raised by donations and fundraisers.
According to parents, the goal of the trust fund is to offer scholarships and to be used as a subsidy. Upcoming fundraisers for the school include a St. Patrick’s Day Dinner scheduled for Saturday, March 20, at 7 p.m.
To schedule a tour of the school or for any registration questions, contact St. Agnes School at 1-732-381-0850.
