At Tall Pines School our curriculum is not restricted to the classroom. Our extra-curricular program enables our students to develop their interests and learn new skills. These programs are an essential part of the school program.
Tall Pines School supports the ongoing health and physical development of our students through a variety of sports including participation in SSAF (Small Schools Athletic Federation) activities. Each year particular sports are chosen. The importance of sports is in the participation and the team spirit; not necessarily the winning of trophies. Our students play with body and heart and are winners in every area. During the 2019-2020 school year our students will be participating in the following sports:
Cross- Country Running Team (Grades 1-8, boys and girls)
Indoor Soccer (Grades 3-8)
Elementary Girls Basketball Team (Grades 6-8)
Elementary Open Flag Football Team (Grades 7&8)
U-12 Coed Flag Football Team (boys and girls in Grades 5&6)
