Afterschool Clubs Submissions OPEN

Aloha Solomon Families, 


We are so excited to offer After-School Clubs for enrichment at Solomon this year! We believe this is an opportunity for students to grow in other activities. Our schedule is as follows: 

  • Session 1:  01 Sep 2022 - 29 Sep 2022 
  • Session 2:  14 Nov 2022 - 16 Dec 2022
  • Session 3:  30 Jan 2023 - 03 Mar 2023
  • Session 4:  03 Apr 2023 - 05 May 2023

All students who sign up for an After-School Club will be selected at random. Slots are filled by random selection from those who applied within the application period. If more students sign up for a Club than there are slots, they will be put on a wait-list. For equity among all students, priority will be given to students who have not participated in a club previously. For example, if a Fourth Grader has applied and was selected for Ukulele in Session 1, then they will not have priority in Session 2, 3, or 4. All students are welcome to apply for each session.
