Extracurricular Activities

D.N. Fell offers a wide variety of extracurricular activities ranging from Dance to Golf to Arts and Crafts. A full listing will be made available in October 2016.

 

Eighth Grade Yearbook Committee

This is open to any eighth student. The members attend weekly meetings that discuss fund raising, dress down days, trips and other functions. In the spring the focus shifts to creating the yearbook. The members organize and arrange pictures by themes and each works on developing a certain page.

Student Government

There are four eighth grade officers of the Fell student government (President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer). Their classmates elect these students after giving speeches on why they would be effective in their positions. The officers’ duties include attending meetings, organizing activities, taking yearbook pictures, making announcements, voicing student concerns and assisting with school functions.

 

Annual Class Trips

Each year students in Grade 4 visit Washington D.C. and students in Grade 8 visit New York City.

Intramural Sports

At Fell we offer several Intramurals throughout the year including Flag Football, Indoor Soccer, Basketball & Floor Hockey.  Our Winter Interscholastic Sports  include Girls & Boys Basketball and a Co-Ed Track Team in the Spring.

We also have a Fell Cheerleading Team for grades 6-8.

In addition to the Intramural Sports every year we take a group of Fell student-athletes to the Penn Relays and partake in the Penn Relays School Days Field Trip.
