Clubs & Activities

What’s your passion — ceramics, goats, D&D, running? Could you use a little help getting organized in the mornings?

CSMS has many established clubs that meet before or after school. Areas of interest include everything from student support and discussion groups to hands-on maker projects, chicken and goat care, and so much more.

Don’t see the club you’re looking for on the current list? Students looking to establish a new club just need to find a teacher sponsor to get started.

New clubs will form at the beginning of the school year. The list below is a list of last year’s clubs to give you an idea. We will post the 2019-2020 club list mid September.
