Students ranging in age from 9 to 12 are ready to explore new areas and to learn about different topics. The Dyer Intermediate School clubs and activities help to provide opportunities to explore areas not typically covered in the traditional school curriculum. Clubs at Dyer provide time to explore areas of interest with other students who share that same interest. Clubs provide a natural setting to help our students practice and form new social skills, which in turn, facilitate growth toward becoming positive and productive community members. Listen to announcements for when clubs will begin and meet during the school year.
