School Clubs and Activities

Rilke Schule offers a number of activities and options for children before and after school. We sponsor an extended school day early in the morning, and a homework club after school. In addition, we have a number of other before and after school activities. Other organizations also offer activities for children before and after school.

Second Quarter REGISTRATION FORM

Updated Registration Information
Club registration will be held on Monday, October 13th beginning at 7:00am. Due to the overwhelming response to wait times for club registration, we are attempting to streamline the process in order to better honor your time. We strive to make the process fair to all; therefore we apologize in advance that we cannot accept emailed or faxed club forms. Club registration must be done in person. If you as the parent cannot be present, you may send a representative on your behalf with the form.
The new process is listed below:

  • ONLY paper registration forms will be accepted on Monday, October 13th beginning at 7:00am. Each form will be marked with the date and time it was received.
  • NO payments will be accepted on Monday to help facilitate the process.
  • Once confirmation is received that your student has a guaranteed space in a club you may pay for your club(s) online via Zangle.
  • If you need to pay by cash or check, payments can be brought to the office during normal school hours (Monday-Friday, 7:00am-3:00pm) beginning Tuesday, October 14th.
  • Receipts will be issued per ASD policy when cash or check is received in the office. We highly discourage sending money with your child to alleviate potential loss.
  • If your child has an outstanding club balance from 1st quarter, registration for other quarters will not be permitted until the 1st quarter balance has been paid in full.

Classes may be canceled if less than 10 children are enrolled. If your child is in an activity that ends at 4:15 and you will not be picking him or her up until 5 PM, you will need to sign your child up for the second hour of Homework Club. All students not picked up promptly from an activity will be sent to Homework Club and the parents will be charged an additional fee. If a child is picked up more than fifteen minutes after the designated pickup time, a fee of $25 will be charged for each additional fifteen minutes, paid to the staff member who stays with your child. If you are going to arrive late, please call (907)570-2496 and notify the staff member in charge.
