There are many after school activities available for Southfield students to participate in beyond athletics and we continue to add and enhance our program offerings as we identify interest from our students.
Whether exploring an early interest in civic leadership or an interest in math or music, our students enjoy many opportunities to explore their passions.
Advanced Visual Arts
Taught by Margaret Holt, Advanced Visual Arts is offered to 7th-8th grade serious art students who are dedicated to building skills to become better artists. Students do not have to be “good artists” in order to join, they just need to have the desire to improve and willingness to practice. Students will apply what they have learned about the elements of art and principles of design. Traditional art genres (landscape, still life, additive sculpture, portraiture, and more) will be introduced and technical applications in various media will be taught. Register here or complete this form and return to the school by August 30th for the fall semester.
Sponsored by our Library Director, Middle School students can join a book club that meets monthly in the library during recess.
Students can learn basic cooking skills in 4th-8th grades.
Kindergarten through 5th grade families!
You’re invited to attend our Join Scouting Night on Wednesday, August 21st, from 6:00-7:00pm in the Southfield Café. We are planning a fun year of pinewood derby racing, raingutter regattas, camping, and more fun activities! Next Wednesday is YO-YO NIGHT! All current Scouts and families are asked to arrive by 5:45pm.

Register here or complete this form and return to the school to be an Eagle Singer!
Gaming & Digital Arts Club
This 10-week club of in-depth game play and development will focus on level design and team building. The club will expand on what the students are currently learning in their digital art and design class. The students will have the opportunity to work independently and in teams to create playable in-game levels. Different games will be played and broken down to understand what makes them successful and then the student will apply what they learn into their own creation. The goal is to create a fun filled atmosphere for the children to play and learn how to create various types of video games. Register here or complete this form and return to the school by August 30th. For more information, please contact Baron Capers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lower School Art Club
Art Club is for 2nd-4th grade students who love art and want more opportunities to create! Students are given the opportunity to explore their creative ideas and talents through projects that are an extension of the elementary arts curriculum. Session topics will range from: painting, clay, drawing, and recycled art, to name a few. This club meets Mondays after school September 9th-November 4th.
