Extracurricular Activities

After-school programs and extracurricular activities provide a richer environment to help students learn and grow. At Covedale School, students have access to a variety of programs and activities to explore their interests.

Enrichment Activities

Covedale offers a variety of enrichment activities as part of the school day depending on the student's grade level and class:

Award-winning recycling & composting program — Classroom and lunchroom composting and recycling teach students about conservation, responsibility, and more.

Career Day — Unique opportunity for students in grades 4-6 to learn about professions in our community.

Concerts — Each child will have an opportunity to be on stage at some point during the year!

Gifted Education — Full-time gifted intervention specialist (Mrs. Tisue) provides individualized instruction to identified gifted students.

iGames — Over the summer, students entering 5th grade were able to participate in a free camp funded by UC in which they used STEM skills to train invertebrates for competition. (Covedale cleaned up at the final games!)

Latin — Part of our college preparatory program.

Pre-Algebra — Offered to students in 6th grade who have mastered 6th grade math standards.

School Store — "Colts Cash" earned for positive behavior/school jobs can be spent at the school store, teaching real-world economics.

Tutors/Mentors — For younger students, part of the daily recycling team, and more.

University of Cincinnati's StEP (Student Enterprise Program) — Available for all students in grades 4-6; students earn StEP dollars which can be spent at the StEP store, saved (with interest!), or donated to charity.  Covedale had the 5th highest donation number out of the twenty-two schools that participated in the program last year. The students donated a total of $488.08 real dollars to their charity (SPCA)!
