At Renaissance, learning reaches beyond the school day. Renaissance offers a number of enrichment programs and school sponsored activities.
All enrichment programs and sign up information will be listed in the school Newsletter.
Renaissance Running Club
The primary goals of the program are to encourage participation in running related activities in a non-competitive environment, to teach and promote healthy living and lifestyle, and to provide an organized outlet for physical exercise at school during the week for 30-45 minute blocks. The club is open to all students grades K-6 and their parents.
Band and Orchestra
Band and Orchestra are offered to students in grades 4-6 through DC Downbeat. Students learn to play a musical instrument and perform in at least two concerts. Band and Orchestra provides students opportunities to engage in active learning, develop character, expand their musicianship, develop perseverance and expand their collaborative skills.
Renaissance is one of only a few schools offering music and drama enrichment at the elementary level. At Renaissance, we believe instruction in musical theater aligns well with our beliefs about educating the whole child, providing outlets for self-expression and creativity. Through these programs children engage in active learning, develop character, expand their musicianship, develop perseverance and expand their collaborative skills.
Several outside organizations use classrooms at Renaissance for after-school activities. While these are not school sponsored activities, we provide their information as a service to our families. Staff from Renaissance are not involved in the planning and execution of these activities. Payment is made directly to the organizers, and the REA Enrichment Scholarship program is not applicable.

The REA board believes that all students should be able to participate in the school’s activity programs, regardless of the family’s ability to financially support these endeavors. A limited number of scholarships are available each semester to provide assistance to those in need.
