Clubs and Activities

In addition to extracurricular sports for Grades 3-8, we offer fun and engaging after-school programs throughout the year designed to enrich the diverse interests, passions, and strengths of our students. Whether they're looking for ways to sharpen their creativity, try new athletic pursuits, or challenge their minds, your children will find a wide variety of clubs and activities to excite them at Community Day School.

 

Many of our after-school programs are developed and taught by our talented faculty and staff, as well as in partnership with Pittsburgh-area arts and education organizations. With new offerings to sign up for three times a year, CDS students always find something interesting to explore.

Can you build a bridge using only spaghetti noodles, straws, and marshmallows that will hold a heavy weight? Or how about a tower out of index cards that can support the weight of golf balls? Can you retrieve an object from the center of a 3-ft square area, without crossing the lines? In Odyssey of the Mind, students learn how to think outside the box to solve these types of problems by providing open-ended challenges that appeal to a wide range of interests. While encouraging imaginative paths to problem solving, Odyssey of the Mind teachers students how to identify challenges, communicate effectively, work as a team, and to think creatively to solve those problems.

One of my favorite memories was waiting backstage during musical practice and laughing my head off with all of my friends. Thank you CDS for giving me a wonderful opportunity to be a different person every year, while still being able to express my true self.
