List of 4 items.
The after-school club program, available to students in grades Pre-K through eighth, provides enrichment activities and learning opportunities designed to encourage students to explore and develop new skills and share their talents and interests with the NFS community.
Experienced instructors - NFS faculty and members of the local community - are committed to sharing their expertise in club topics and to providing the best possible learning experience for each student.
Each club meets once per week from 3:30 - 4:30. For more information, please contact Sarah Buxton, Program Director.
NFS’s interscholastic sports teams attract a large number of energetic student-athletes, many of whom play all three seasons. Teams are open to fifth graders and middle schoolers, with a few teams available to fourth graders. Participation, camaraderie, skill development, sportsmanship, and having fun are all stressed, and games—especially big games—often draw enthusiastic crowds of parents and fellow students.
