Clubs and Extracurricular
Clubs and Groups
Many extracurricular activities are planned for students in all grades throughout the year. Over 30 after school activities are offered each trimester, and there's something of interest for every student. From science based activities, to reading, sports, and arts - the fun and learning continues well beyond the end of the school day.
In March, Congressional's auditorium is transformed into a theater for the schools' annual Spring Musical. Rehearsals, set building, lighting and sound design, and finally the night of the musical make this an exciting time at Congressional. The schools' first musical took place in March 1998 with a performance of The King and I. The most recent production, held in Spring 2016, was "Peter Pan Junior". Rehearsals for Congressional’s musical production begin with auditions for the main characters by Middle School students.
Whether playing a lead role or not, any interested Lower or Middle School student may sign up to be part of the cast or production crew. There are also many opportunities for parents to assist in painting and building sets, gather costumes and props, and assist with rehearsals.
The Congressional Record is the schools' yearbook, which is produced by the students under the guidance of a faculty member. Middle School students may apply to be a member of the yearbook staff. This core group of students works as photographers, layout specialists, fact checkers and editors before producing the finished product by the end of the academic year. The yearbook is produced digitally, then printed and distributed to all students.
