After School Activities

Kenwood School has a variety of classes after school throughout the year. Classes range between one and two hours and usually end between 3:00 and 4:00p.m. Students must have their own transportation home.

On Mondays & Wednesdays, we have Spanish language classes for grades K-5. These classes are taught through the University Language Center which offers language classes in many school in Minneapolis. This is a fee based program. Call the University Language Center 952-224-5600 or visit www.ulanguage.com for more information on the program.

On Tuesdays, we offer French language classes for grade K-5.  For more information or to register contact Alliance Franciase at 612-332-0436 or visit http://afmsp.org/education/youth/  

We offer a variety of ALC (Area Learning Center) classes on Mondays and Wednesdays from 2:00-4:00.  Classes include Band, Young Athletes, Sewing, Bird Watching, Reading/Math, Game Club and Advanced Math.  Different classes are taught at different grade levels, so please contact your student's teacher for more information.  

On Tuesdays this year, we offer a 12 week session of the Kenwood Chess Club for grades K-5. This club is run by the Twin Cities Chess Club. This is a fee based program. Kids are able to participate at all levels. We will have another 12 week session in the Spring. http://www.twincitieschessclub.com

For 2nd-5th graders we have a GEMS/GISE program on Mondays and Wednesdays.  During the first half of the year we participate in FIRST LEGO League Challenge, which is based on a real-world scientific topic. Each Challenge has three parts: the Robot Game, the Project, and the FLL Core Values. Teams of up to ten children, with at least one adult coach, participate in the Challenge by programming an autonomous robot to score points on a themed playing field (Robot Game), developing a solution to a problem they have identified (Project), all guided by the FLL Core Values. Teams may then attend an official tournament, hosted by our FIRST LEGO League Partners. Participants are exposed to potential career paths within a chosen Challenge topic, in addition to solidifying the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) principles that naturally come from participating in the program. Team members also learn valuable life and employment skills which will benefit them no matter which career path they choose. 

For 4th & 5th graders we have an Annual School MusicalStudents stay after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays until the play performance — in the middle of February.
