AFTER SCHOOL ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS
UDS offers various after school enrichment programs to all students. Most enrichment programs run for 4-8 weeks and meet once or twice a week on campus after school. Some enrichment programs are organized by grade level, with a K-2nd grade group, a 3-5th grade group, and a middle school group. UDS enrichment programs offer athletic, academic, and creative options to choose from. Some examples of past enrichment programs include Chess Club, Kids Yoga, Tennis, Zumba, Basketball, Boys Let Me Run, Girls On the Run, Atomz Lab, and many more! The exact enrichment programs, and their cost, will be announced closure to the enrichment enrollment period.
In the 2018-19 year, UDS unveiled its House System (think Harry Potter!) The house system organizes students from across all grade levels into one of five houses. The houses meet once a month to work on activities and participate in house events. The house system gives students a chance to form friendships across grade levels, participate in community activities, and compete in athletic and academic contests between houses. Each house name celebrates a different, unique culture from around the world. Houses will be assigned to new students the first month of school.
