Clubs, Competitions, and Awards

In-school Clubs

There are several Fridays during the school year that we hold "club day" during the school day. During this time, students are allowed a choice of many different clubs to attend. They sign up for a club and go to this club to learn more about their topic in a relaxed atmosphere. This also allows for students to be part of a club that cannot participate in after school clubs. These in school clubs include: Weaving, 3D printing, Friendship bracelet making, Board Games, Golf club, Rock painting, STEM club, and much more. These clubs can change from year to year.

After-school Clubs

Dimon has many after school clubs. These clubs are typically for grades 3-5. These clubs usually lead to competitions, so students are chosen to be part of these clubs based on interest and ability.
