Activities and Clubs

  • After School Activities and Clubs:

    Falcon Creek Middle School offers a variety of opportunities for students to engage in after school activities and clubs. We encourage all students to pursue their interests and passions through extracurricular activities. The more involved a student is within their school, the better they will achieve and feel connected. Please be sure to talk with your student about staying after school and be sure your student communicates with you about which club or activity and day that your student plans on staying after to participate. After school activities run from 3:45 to 4:40 Monday – Thursday. Some groups meet before school so students may participate in other activities after school.

    The following is a list of clubs and activities at Falcon Creek:
