We are committed to supporting our students beyond their work in the classroom and to expanding opportunities for extracurricular activities in D65. We are excited to announce that we are looking to build an inclusive athletic program for elementary students in fourth and fifth grade beginning in the 2022-2023 school year. We believe this will offer much-needed opportunities for students to get more physical activity, develop relationships with peers, learn the importance of teamwork, build self-esteem, learn valuable life skills, and more!
We are so grateful for our educators, staff, and community partners who currently help to facilitate various academic, enrichment, and extracurricular programs for our students. We know these individuals have great insights to share. As we look to build a program available to students across our district, we want to make sure this is a team effort!

Sports physicals are effective for 395 days (13 months) from the date issued.
