For Winter 2019, there are several new and exciting clubs for Silver Strand students to join!

Please refer to individual club flyers on Strand’s website (look for digital flyers found in PEACHJAR) to register & get club details. Some of these after school clubs are provided & run by independent program providers, approved through Coronado Unified School District and are not supervised or operated by Silver Strand Elementary staff.  Some will be provided by our staff as well. All registration activities and specific program questions should be directed to the independent program provider or Karen Pierro at x303. The front office will have some hardcopy flyers as well.
