Program Registration –
ALL Rocky Run students must submit this program registration form prior to staying after-school.
Club Specific Registration –
Most clubs are open enrollment; however, some clubs will have sign-up requirements. If a sign-up is needed, club sponsors will review program information, commitment requirements, and the club selection process at the initial club meeting.
Program information will be posted on Rocky Run’s website under the Activities section and on the 7th and 8th grade google classroom sites. A weekly schedule will be posted on the Rocky Run website every Friday for the following week.
Please make sure to communicate in the morning with your student so you are aware of his/her after-school plans in an effort to reduce confusion in the afternoon.
All students who are in the building after the 2:15 pm bell must be signed in with a teacher/club. Students must sign in within the first 10 minutes of sessions 1 and 2.
Late Bus Routes –
Due to safety and security, we cannot post bus routes on the public web. Bus routes are posted on the 7th and 8th grade google classroom sites. Please review the routes with your student prior to him/her staying after-school as we have fewer buses and fewer stops than the regular school day.
All parent pick-up must take place by 4:30 pm each day. In order to minimize activity disruptions, we recommend picking your student up at Kiss-n-Ride at session dismissal times (3:10, 4:05, 4:30 pm). If you need to pick your student up during a session, you will have to come into the main office to check him/her out.
As a reminder, students are not permitted to leave school grounds before or between sessions and then return to school.
Club Offerings –
A preliminary list of club offerings has been posted at the top of this page. Please check this list frequently as clubs will be added throughout the year. If your student is interested in starting a new club, he/she should complete this club proposal form and return it to Mrs. Campbell (during lunches or in 149).

Mission of the After-School Programs:
Rocky Run Middle School is committed to promoting active participation in extracurricular activities to support the academic mission and enrich the lives of students. Students who engage in these programs are more likely to develop positive attitudes towards school, achieve full academic potential, and become productive citizens. Students are encouraged to maintain a balance between their instructional studies, after school activities, and other outside interests. The Middle School After-School Program is funded and implemented through a collaborative partnership between Fairfax County Public Schools, Office of After-School Programs, and the Fairfax County Government, Department of Community and Recreation Services.
