Clubs, Activities, Sports, and Field Trips at Your School

Beyond the Bell

Tacoma Public Schools and community partners have come together to offer Beyond the Bell. Beyond the Bell lets you choose from more activities at your school than ever before. Choose from options for before and after school, in-service days, and school breaks.

Everything is all in one place. Go to the Compass: TPS Family App and look for Beyond the Bell.

You will find descriptions and schedules for all activities offered at your school. Check for free opportunities and discounts. 

Beyond the Bell is in elementary schools and Club Beyond is in middle schools across Tacoma Public Schools, powered by community partners.

Flexible Pricing: 2022-2023 after school clubs, activities, and sports

Beyond the Bell partners want to ensure that every student has access to affordable after school experiences. 

When you register, you will see three payment options per session: 
•    $96 per club/activity/sport
•    Reduced Lunch: $48 per club/activity/sport
•    Free Lunch: $0 per club/activity/sport

Every dollar paid goes directly to the Beyond the Bell program, helping make activities more affordable and accessible for every child. Cost should never be a barrier for any family, so further fee waiver assistance/scholarships are available to help. Call Metro Parks Tacoma at 253-305-1030 for additional information.
The average cost per activity is $320. Discounted rates are offered thanks to Tacoma Creates, private philanthropy, City of Tacoma, Pierce County, Greentrike, Metro Parks Tacoma, Tacoma Public Schools and individual donors -- leveraging resources to help reduce fees for ALL Tacoma families.
