2021–2022 Extracurricular Activities

NOTE: For health and safety reasons, Extended Care and ECAs are temporarily running differently than in years past.

TNCS offers a range of extracurricular activities (ECAs) after the school day is over. Enrollment is optional. ECAs are offered on a quarterly basis.

After Care as well as non–After Care students are welcome to register for extracurricular activities.  For the 2021–2022 school year, After Care Clubs are included in the price of After Care; specialty activities require an additional fee.

  • When we are able to offer offsite programs, TNCS provides transportation to partner organizations.
  • ECAs must meet a minimum enrollment to run, and TNCS may cancel an ECA at any time due to low enrollment. In the event an ECA is canceled, you will receive a refund for the canceled portion.
