Buck Club

The “Buck” Club meets in the cafeteria before school from 6:45-7:45 AM. The Buck Club is for students whose parents must drop them off before 7:45. Those students will have supervision in the cafeteria. Parents must pay $1.00 per day for their children to participate in the morning supervised activities (hence, the name, Buck Club). This is a self-supporting program and accounts must be kept in good standing in order to attend. Parents may make arrangements ahead of time by paying for the Buck Club, or may send their child with $1.00 any time the child needs supervision before 7:45 AM. Students may not be dropped off to wait on school grounds before 7:45 unless they participate in the Buck Club program. Students dropped off prior to 7:45 AM must come indoors for supervision and pay $1. There is no grace period on the time. Come early enough to make it worth your dollar, or please wait until 7:45 AM when there is no charge.

→ What is Badger U?

BADGER U is the place to be for all Prescott Unified School District students, preschool through grade 12. Think of Badger U as your one-stop shop for all things extracurricular, encompassing all opportunities outside of regular classroom hours—including after school clubs, athletics, and summer school—at all seven of our school campuses

Badger U serves to further the PUSD academic program with enriching student experiences, as well as guiding your child’s path from preschool through senior high school. Today, your students might be Lincoln Lions, or Granite Mountain Grizzlies, but one day they will be Badgers! And at Badger U, your child will be developing 21st century skills and engaging with their school community while participating in fun activities. Combine this with an exceptional staff, and Badger U is just the place for your student today and the leaders of tomorrow.
