Buck Club

“Buck” Club meets in the cafeteria before school, from 7:00-­7:45 a.m. Buck Club is for students whose parents must drop them off before 7:45. Those students will have supervision in the cafeteria. However, parents must pay $1 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. If there is a financial need, scholarships may be made available by contacting the principal. Parents may make arrangements ahead of time by paying for Buck Club or may send their child with $1 any time the child needs supervision before 7:45 a.m. Students may not be dropped off to wait on school grounds before 7:45 unless they participate in Buck Club program. Students dropped off prior to 7:45 a.m. must pay $1. There is no “grace period” on the time. Come early enough to make it worth your dollar, or wait until 7:45 a.m., 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.
