David Lubin After School Academy (DLASA)
Your child can participate in additional STEAM enrichment opportunities through our after-school After School Academy Program. Operating in the fall and spring, 4-6 weeks classes are offered in subjects like knitting, photography, dance, chess, engineering, sports and theater.
Children in grades 4-6 can participate as photojournalists for the yearbook, capturing life on campus through the lens of the camera and submitting their efforts for David Lubin’s yearbook. The photojournalists meet monthly after school to discuss photo assignments and to learn about photography through instruction on subjects such as lighting, framing and composition. They end their year better photographers than they started and excited about their participation in the yearbook process.
Annually, students can show off their talents by participating in our Talent Show, a David Lubin tradition. Your aspiring singer, performer, musician, dancer or comedian performs for students and parents alike.
Our free, competitive sports programs give your child the opportunity for fun physical activity. Volunteer parent coaches teach students sports fundamentals, and students compete against participating local elementary schools. Currently, David Lubin maintains soccer, football and basketball teams seasonally during the school year.
Girls on the Run
Girls on the Run® is dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. Meeting twice a week in small teams of 8-20 girls, certified volunteer coaches teach life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. The 24-lesson curriculum includes three parts: understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large. This culminates in participation in a 5K run which all the girls may participate.
Once a year our student talents are showcased in a Science/STEAM night. Children in grades 4-6 participate in a Science Fair where they showcase their in-depth science projects. In addition, teachers, local scientists and community organizations provide interactive science and technology stations where students of all ages (and parents) can learn more about science in fun and creative ways. Station topics have included geology, anatomy, gardening, space, magnetism, and other STEM fields.
