BEST - After-School Programs
Duct tape projects, ceramics, model rocketry, rock climbing, and more!
Kelly Middle School has joined together with River Road Parks to bring the after school activities to Kelly. This after-school program aims at helping Kelly students succeed in academics. In addition to extra study time, the program also features enrichment classes such as art, cooking, drama, sports and more. Activities are taught by Kelly teachers, River Road Park instructors, local service agencies, arts agencies, and qualified individuals from the community.
After a study period, a nutritious snack is provided, then kids move on to the enrichment activities. Participating students who normally ride the school bus home after school at 3:30 p.m. ride school buses home after the last activity at 5:30 p.m.
Program offerings change every four to five weeks. Your student will bring home a flyer just before each session begins. Be sure to turn it in right away, because some classes fill early. The cost of the program is $25 per session for as many classes as students would like to take.

GANAS - After School Homework Club
This after-school program for students interested in Latino culture. Besides homework help, students may do fun activities like craft-making and dances. Spanish-speaking aides are available. In these photos, the Kelly students in the Ganas after school study group pose for a picture and University of Oregon MeCHA students work with the Kelly kids on their homework.
There are three school socials every school year. These events features a variety of activities designed for students to practice social skills and have fun while increasing their positive bonding to school. Activities may include such things as craft-making, games, and of course dancing while a live DJ spins tunes. We encourage all students to participate.
Each March students prepare a school play. They construct the sets, apply make-up, make costumes, act and stage hands, and act-up (surprize). The show must go on! Plays performed have included: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Wizard of Oz, Peter Pan, Beauty and the Beast, Alice in Wonderland, We are the Dream, Blue Horses, and Shakespeare to Go!
At the beginning of every school year it is the tradition of all Kelly students to participate in a combined fitness walk and fund raiser. Students get monetary pledges from family members, neighbors, staff members, and friends. Then by Homerooms, they walk from Kelly down to Alton Baker Park along with their teachers and parent volunteers. There they take a break with a free barbeque lunch (food is donated by community businesses). Then comes the long walk back to school. After all the pledge money is turned in, students get to celebrate by attending the RiverWalk Party - a great evening fun event, with miniature golf, karaoke, pizza, and (of course) a dance.
The money students raise is split three ways 1) in support of their various student social activities throughout the school year (dances, speakers, field trips, etc.), 2) in support of classroom learning activities (supplies, materials, etc.), and 3) as a reward the staff members who organized the event by giving them extra school program resources. We appreciate the participation of our community in making our school a great place for learning.
Friendship Week is a series of activities planned by our Student Council. The goals are to encourage and celebrate friendships, for students to have a good time together, to practice their growing social skills, and to feel positive about being in school. This year, as in past years, every day of the week is a special dress-up occasion. The culminating activity was a shortened schedule on Thursday, with a variety of fun activities to choose from in the late afternoon, including a dance. A big sign announces Friendship Week activities like rose and candygram sales, as well as "wierd dress-up day."
Students may choose to participate in track and field in the spring.
The fee is $100. A physical is required before participation (click here for the form).
