Creative Arts
Creative Arts Club is for students to express themselves creatively through art, music, and writing. It's a great way to meet and collaborate with people who have a similar interest in the arts. In previous years students have written songs, created comics and drawings, made poetry books and started musical groups.

Giving Garden/Harvest Club
The Village of Evergreen Park and District 124 have partnered together to provide a hands-on learning opportunity for our middle school students. The Giving Garden is located at 94th and Turner Avenue. Students plan, cultivate and maintain the small city lot with a variety of produce during the spring. In the fall, all produce is then harvested and donated to The Village Food Pantry.   
Please visit the Giving Garden/Harvest Club webpage to learn more about these clubs.
