Forcey offers enrichment opportunities for elementary and middle schoolers in the form of after school clubs.
In addition to our in-class STEM activities, FCS partners with The Great Adventure Lab to offer after-school clubs for our elementary students. FCS hosts seven-week clubs such as Space Engineers, Lego Engineering, and Storybook Science. Lego Robotics and Video Game Programming are among the most popular clubs. Our fall session offers a variety of clubs for children in first through fifth grades. The spring session is also open to kindergartners.
Beginning in fourth grade, students may join the school band. Elementary school band opportunities include beginner and advanced band. Students have the opportunity to continue band as an in-school advanced band elective in middle school. Forcey also has an invite-only jazz band that tackles classics with a jazz twist. Band students perform for parents and students during school chapel, concerts and occasionally during open houses.
Students in first through fifth grade who love to sing and stretch themselves vocally can choose to participate in the after-school choir for elementary school. Choir students perform during school chapel, concerts and occasionally during open houses.
In fourth through eighth grade, Forcey offers a chess club at beginner and middle technique levels. Children may study new strategy as well as play peers for competition practice. In middle school, students may also choose chess as a class elective during school hours. Forcey has won the ACSI Regional Chess Competition for the last two years in the elementary and middle school level competition.
At the elementary level for first through fifth grade, Forcey offers a weekly after school Spanish language acclimation program to familiarize students to pronunciation and basic vocabulary of the language. Fourteen weeks of classes divide students by age to best meet the needs of students.
Forcey’s participation in Destination Imagination is only a few years old and yet the school has managed to send multiple teams to the State Competition two years running. Destination Imagination is available only because of volunteer parent coaches who are dedicated to seeing kids problem-solving in unique and exciting ways.
