Enrichment & Summer Programs
Every other year, interested Sussex students in grades five through eight prepare and perform a drama or musical production as part of supplemental enrichment. This year the Sussex Players are performing Bugsy Jr. May 1- May 4th. For tickets and more information click here.
Past productions have included “Seussical, Jr.,” “Fame,” and “Willy Wonka, Jr.”
6th thru 8th graders may participate in Mathcounts, a national math competition sponsored by the National Society of Professional Engineers and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Students compete regionally against other western Montana schools with the opportunity to move on to state and national competitions if successful. Sussex School has produced some of the strongest teams in Montana over the years, often placing in the top three of the western region and winning multiple state trophies. Many Sussex students over the years have placed among the top four in the state, earning the right to compete on Team Montana at the National Competition.
Math Club is a fun opportunity for students in grades 3–6 interested in pushing themselves mathematically. This club helps students think critically and engage in problem-solving. It is also great preparation for those interested in being on a Mathcounts team.
Band & Music Ensembles
The band ensemble is designed to help students prepare for high school band and provide a more robust musical experience for those who love music. Sussex uses the “Standard of Excellence” method, and all band instruments are welcome. Both beginner and audition ensemble groups are available for students who are interested.
