Clubs & Organizations
SST Northwest is proud to offer our students with a variety of afterschool activities and clubs for the 2021-2022 school year.
SST Northwest Fall Clubs Information
-Clubs will begin the week of September 27th and meet weekly through the week of December 6th.
-Please be sure to look carefully at the grade levels indicated for each club before making your selections.
-Club fees vary slightly depending on the resources needed for each club and will help cover the cost of materials, books, and equipment as well as a club celebration that will take place at the end of the semester. Parents will be sent a link in ParentSquare to pay club fees along with the official confirmation of enrollment.
- We may need to limit how many clubs a student can join to allow all students to participate. Your child may not be able to have a spot in a club every day but we will ensure they are able to participate in at least one club of choice. Parents will receive official notice of their child's enrollment into a club for confirmation.
-While some clubs will have limits on spots, we have created a plan to offer many spots in our K-2nd clubs because we have several staff members teaming up. Our goal is that every student will be able to join the club of their choice.
Requirements for clubs:
grade average above 70 in all classes
Attendance above 90 percent average (unless valid excuses)
Positive behavior during the school day
*these clubs will also work towards participating in a competition for their areas.
Important- Students enrolled in our Narwhal Afterschool care will receive a 50% discount on club fees.
