• Clubs & Activities

    To develop our extensive list of after-school clubs, the Leman staff surveyed all students on the after-school clubs/activities that they would like to see offered at LMS. We analyzed the data and determined the clubs/activities that were highly selected by our students. We are excited to bring these opportunities to our students!

    In addition to the new clubs, we run an Activity Bus at 4:30 PM to transport students home from all clubs and activities. Please note that students who do not qualify for bussing during the school day will not be permitted to ride the Activity Bus after school.

    Each year the club/activity offerings may vary depending on student interest.  The club sponsors will advertise for their clubs several weeks prior to the start date.
