Activities

BelovED offers its scholars an array of onsite after school activities and clubs in which they can choose to participate.  Some are led by teachers, parents and/or community members and are free.  Some are provided by outside organizations and sometimes charge a participation fee.  Teachers, parents, community members and organizations are welcome to propose and/or organize new activities and clubs for our scholars, which keeps the offerings fresh and varied.

Examples of some of the broad array of activities and clubs recently offered to our scholars include:
