Clubs and Music Ensembles
Germantown Friends School offers after-school clubs and musical opportunities that engage and excite children—and to reinforce the essential values taught throughout the school day.
GFS is thrilled to offer after-school clubs, including Karate, Soccer Shots, and You Go Girls. New clubs this fall include Animation Studio, Bread Baking, Crazy Creative Creations, French Club for Middle Schoolers, and Musical Theatre. We will offer clubs both on Main Campus and our Center City location.
Club Grade Levels
Although clubs are designed for particular grade levels, we may be able to accommodate interested students from outside of the designated grades provided space is available and the instructor approves. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
We wish for all students to be able to participate in programming offered by GFS. Financial assistance is available for qualifying families. If you would like your child to participate and you anticipate needing assistance, please fill out the Non-Tuition Financial Aid Application by September 9, 2019.
Stacey will save a place for financial aid applicants in clubs that fill, so that needing assistance does not prevent a child from participating in a popular club. Only financial aid applicants who meet this deadline will be permitted to attend the desired club(s) while financial aid decisions are pending.
Because the three music ensembles (Orchestra, World Percussion, and Lower School Chorus) are part of the Lower School music curriculum, there is no fee for the instruction.
To participate, we ask that you please enroll your child here once you have received word from Debbie Stahl or Taia Harlos that your child is eligible to participate.
