Half-Day Release Wednesday FAQ (updated 7/26/2021)

For Wednesday Athletics please visit the Archway Athletics Page.
Each extra-curricular club and Study Club is sold separately. If you sign your student up for a club during the second session (2:10pm – 3:20pm), you will also need to sign up and pay for your child to be in Study Club during the first session (12:30pm – 2:10pm), unless you pick your child up and bring him or her back to school for his/her club. Your child is not automatically admitted into Study Club if he or she is signed up for an afternoon Extracurricular club.

Golf Club

K – 5th Grade
Start Date:  Wednesday, October 20th from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm
Instructor: Stephen Schyberg, PGA

Golf Squad is for both new and continuing students and provides weekly opportunities for your child to learn the technical swing mechanics (i.e. putting, chipping, full swing, etc.) as well as the social skills required to enjoy golf, the clubs, and golf course (i.e. vocabulary, etiquette, rules, history, etc.) all under the instruction of an LPGA or PGA Professional. Golf is a very challenging and fun sport that can lead to college scholarships. So start early and start now…boys and girls! Even if your child already plays, it is great to enjoy weekly, convenient lessons from the pro.

All essentials are provided during on campus classes (Golf Squad Handbook, training equipment, fitted golf clubs, etc.); each student receives a Golf Squad Handbook and Golf Squad hat/visor to keep.

Our Readiness Policy does encourage all students to have at least one club and a putter at home to practice with if possible.
