• Extracurricular Activities

    At Robert R. Gray Elementary, we believe in extracurricular experiences to foster teamwork, organization, respect, leadership, socialization, and academic enrichment. Based on these premises, here are a few exciting activities we offer for students:

    BOKS Club- Grades 4-6
    We are pleased to announce the launch of BOKS, a before school physical activity program, at the Robert R. Gray Elementary School this fall. BOKS will be for students in the 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grades only. BOKS prepares children for a day of learning and is an important step in helping children gain an appreciation of the benefits of exercise and healthy choices that will last a lifetime. BOKS was inspired by Dr. John Ratey’s book “Spark”. Dr. Ratey, of Harvard Medical School, states that “exercise is the single most powerful tool that we have to optimize the function of our brains.” Classes are filled with team-oriented games and provide plenty of opportunity for play, since the program focuses on fun! 

    Walk, Jog, Run Club- Grades 2-3 
    We are pleased to announce the start of the Fall session of the Walk, Jog, or Run club at Robert R. Gray Elementary School. This club will focus on walking, but also offer running training. Physical activity is a large component of students’ academic success. Through this after school club, we hope to boost students’ success in other academic achievements. Students will come together immediately following dismissal to be active and improve their health. Students can expect to learn about heart rate, cadence, effort, and much more through Walk, Jog, or Run Club!
