The playground is open to all students in grades 2-5. However, activities and supervision are geared more toward children in upper grade levels. The playground is open from the end of the school day to 6:00p.m. Monday through Friday. Students are provided with an opportunity to do homework, although they must work on their own. There is lots of free play time, including sports, recreation, games and snacks. Organized games and activities vary during each week and include team sports. During the winter months after dark, students are brought into the school auditorium, where they can play games or watch videos. If your child is going to be on the playground, you will need to complete an emergency card and return it to the playground supervisor. The program is free (no cost) to all students.
The STAR Program is an after school enrichment program, in which professional teachers come to Clover and teach a variety of classes such as dance, gymnastics, science, drama, etc. Each class has a fee. This program has been at Clover for several years.
