Co-curricular activities are events related to classroom subjects that normally occur outside of the classroom. They are often related to competition with students from other schools, such as the Academic Decathlon and Pentathlon. Students who qualify are encouraged to take part in co-curricular activities. In addition to the academic activities The Lewis Center for Gifted Learning also offers clubs and enrichment programs in the following arenas:
At the Lewis Center, we believe that it is important to provide our students with opportunities to expand their horizons through innovative, off-site experiences. For this reason, we do take a large number of field trips to destinations that will enhance their curriculum. A $500 activity fee is assessed to each student’s tuition at the beginning of the school year to cover these experiences. In addition, we ask that parents or guardians sign a field trip permission slip that covers the entire year’s activity because they go on them frequently.
Literacy week provides students in grades Kindergarten through 6, the opportunity to open their eyes to the wonderful world of books. During the week, the Library sponsors a book sale, and classes dress up in their favorite book costumes. The week ends on Saturday with hallways being transformed into character themes with teachers dressing up in costume and presenting a fun and educational presentation. There is plenty of food, face painting, games, and a lot of fun.
