The RCLS Lego Robotics Club meets once each week from 3:00-4:30 pm in the RCLS CreatorSpace from September to December.
The ILEO (IBM Lego Education Outreach) competition is in December.
Safety patrol is an extracurricular activity in which students who participate gain leadership and responsibility experience. This yearly commitment is open to students in grades 6-8. Students take turns properly taking down and folding the school flags and assisting others as they safely leave the school and cross the street. Shifts are 15 minutes before and/or after school. Students will receive Overflow (service) hours for this activity.
Run Club is available to K-8 students in April and May. Students train together after school, accumulating miles toward a full marathon. The final leg is run at the Med-City Marathon on Memorial Day Weekend in Rochester.
You never know what sort of activities might be highlighted in a short-term after-school activity club! RCLS strives to offer many new opportunities and experiences for students. Past offerings have included chess, ukulele, and knitting.
