Online Connection— Co-Curricular Classes


Welcome to the Online Connection page for Co-Curricular Classes. Below you will find our co-curricular class offerings in their online format. You may participate in any or all that we offer. You are not restricted to the one you were in before Spring break, or the one you were slated to attend next. There are incentives of various kinds for those who participate. The more you progress in a given class (i.e. chess, debate, etc.) the greater the incentives. For example, we will be giving away gift cards to various restaurants, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc. We will also be giving away unlocked Android phones and iPads. We encourage you to have fun with this; involve your family, compete with your friends. The competition will end, for all disciplines, on July 31, 2020.
