After School Activities Funded by Tax Credit Donations

Here at Continental we are interested in all aspects of our students’ development. Our desire is to provide an environment where everyone is challenged to achieve excellence in academics, character, and life skills.

  • Builders Club - Middle School - Lunch meetings

  • Civics Club - 8th Grade
  • Cursive Club - Grades 4-5 - Mondays after school
  • Sewing Club - Grades 4-5 - Tuesdays after school

The school tax credit donations also fund other activities including our sports program, music program, and Civics Club.

Music

Continental School has a long-standing tradition of outstanding music education for all grade levels. We offer music classes for kindergarten through fifth grade students as well as band for middle school students. Please feel free to visit the Music Department’s very own website. Come and visit often so you can stay up-to-date with all of our latest news!

Civics Club

We designed our Civics Club to encourage students to join together to serve their community. This club is also the avenue whereby our eighth grade students are able to go to Washington, D.C., in the spring. While there, they visit museums, national monuments, and government buildings. This trip is the grand finale of their eighth grade year and exposes them to an intense, hands-on experience of our nation’s history, government, and cultural diversity.
