There is no shortage of fun among our students. Susquehanna Prep/Apple Tree offers many enrichment opportunities in the classroom and beyond that are widely received. Kids have the opportunity to explore Washington DC during their eighth-grade year, upper grades take part in science teaching labs, instructing younger students using simple experiments. Students love the October ritual of constructing a haunted house and taking on student leadership positions in Student Council.
Our Student Council is a great way for kids to learn about government. It also gives them the opportunity to voice their opinions and contribute to the betterment of their school. The Student Council sponsors several activities throughout the year to promote socialization and school spirit. Some activities include International Day, Spirit Week, Read Across the School, and school dances.
Students also have the opportunity to join afterschool clubs. Our dedicated staff members and outside professionals guide all the afterschool programs. Some clubs we currently offer are the glee club for 3rd through 8th, dance and drama club for kindergarten through 2nd.
We work each year to do several sports clinics in our gym which include field hockey, soccer and baseball. These clinics allow students to work on a sport with fellow classmates and have fun after school.
Once a month we will offer in school clubs for 2nd grade and up such as cooking, fitness, science and chess. These clubs allow students to enjoy a club experience.
We also offer a homework club, which allows older students to complete work and younger students to play in groups. This can be helpful for parents whose schedule requires a later than normal pick up.
Through participation the students form special friendships and lasting bonds that are carried from year to year.
Developing a well-rounded, best-self student includes physical activity as well as academic acquirements. Students have formal physical education beginning in Kindergarten where sportsmanship and teamwork are taught by our physical education teacher. Our goal is to develop motor skills, coordination and overall physical fitness. This goal is accomplished through games, exercises and activities directed to meet these objectives
In addition, students are learning fundamentals in basketball, baseball, soccer, tennis and golf. Our new gym provides us with a great space to achieve our goals.
Every summer, Susquehanna Prep/Apple Tree offers programming for students young and old. Arts and crafts, outdoor sports and old-fashioned game are just some of the fun exciting adventures of summer camp. Summer camp enrollment is on a weekly basis. Camp takes place in early June .
