'Pay what you choose' registration open for session 2 of Beyond the Bell, Club Beyond for elementary, middle schools

Every student deserves access to fun, engaging and high-quality afterschool programing. This school year our amazing community partners - Greentrike, Metro Parks Tacoma, YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties, and Boys & Girls Clubs of South Puget Sound - came together with TPS to launch Beyond the Bell and Club Beyond. Registration is open now for session 2 for all elementary and middle school students, and thanks to funding from Tacoma Creates and federal relief, programming is “Pay What You Choose” through 2021.

Everything is all in one place. Go to your school’s website or the TPS Family App and look for "Beyond the Bell" under activities. If you choose to pay for a program it will show in your MySchoolBucks account and every dollar goes back to support programs.
