Girls BasketballThe list of activities below represent a wide range of after-school or weekend extra-curricular activities brought to our attention.  While The Children’s House does not review or endorse these activities, we do want you to be aware of the options available. 

Hi Children’s House families! My name is Julie Boss and I am the athletic coordinator for our school! My role is to let families know of the many athletic possibilities available for our children. I will also coordinate coaches and communications between the leagues, participants and school for selected opportunities throughout the year. Please feel free to email me (boss.julie4boys@yahoo.com)  or call me (248-535-1713) with any questions regarding athletic opportunities within the school as well as outside of the school.

Again, if you have any questions or want to become involved in any of these opportunities, please contact me!
