Activities

Compilation of Athletics, Clubs, and other Activities

The After-School Program is made possible by funds from the School Board and the Board of Supervisors along with support from the Dept of Community and Recreation Services, the Safe Community Coalition, other community partners, the FCPS After-School Program Office, and Cooper Middle School teachers, administrators, staff, parents, students, and PTO.

Students will sign-up for an activity on the day the activity meets. Students will sign up using the sign-up stations in the cafeteria during their lunch periods. Each day the student plans to attend an activity they will need to sign up the day of the activity. This ensures us that we know who is coming to the activity. Once students have arrived at their activity for the day they will sign in at the room. This ensures we know they got there.    All clubs are “open” for students to sign-up for, unless otherwise stated (ex. Drama auditions or Science Olympiad Team) For any questions please contact Mr. Frengel in room 100a.
