Activities and Clubs

  • We are currently working to put together a list of activities being offered during the 2017-18 school year.  He hope to publish and send home our 2017-18 Activities Book during the week of September 25-29.

     

    Students at the middle schools have the opportunity to participate in a variety of after school activities.  The activities offered this year are listed in this year’s Activity Book.  We strongly encourage ALL students to participate in at least one activity as an important element in middle school development. 

     

    If your child wants to participate in an after school activity for the 2017-18 school year, the activity fee is $100.00 per child. This is a one time fee and it allows students to participate in as many activities they choose. Student must also have a completed Activities Health form in order to receive their card.  Checks should be made payable to Chelmsford Public Schools.  Once the Activities Book is made available, Activity Cards will be sold in homeroom through Tuesday October 10.  After the 10th, they may be purchased from Mrs. Pindara in the main office. An activity card will be issued to your child to permit him/her to participate in all after school activities for the school year. 

     

    The Late Bus Routes will be given to the students along with their activity card.  Please review the appropriate bus route and bus number carefully.  It is important to note that the Late Bus Routes are very different from the morning and afternoon regular bus routes.  The late buses leave McCarthy from about 3:50 to 4:10.  Generally, the late bus routes necessitate that students walk a greater distance from the bus stop than their regular school bus requires.  Middle school parents should know that Chelmsford High School also utilizes the late bus system.  Students being picked up after activities will be dismissed from the doors next to the cafeteria. 

     

    After school activities and late buses will begin on Tuesday, October 10, 2017. Late buses run on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of each week.  Late bus privileges are used for students who participate in after school activities, extra help, or intramurals.

     

    If you have any questions about the programs or wish further information, please feel free to contact us.
