Beyond the Bell
The Explorers Center
Clubs, Activities, Sports, and Field Trips at Your School
Tacoma Public Schools and community partners have come together to offer Beyond the Bell. Beyond the Bell lets you choose from more activities at your school than ever before. Choose from options for before and after school, in-service days, and school breaks.
Everything is all in one place. Go to the TPS Family App and look for Beyond the Bell.
You will find descriptions and schedules for all activities offered at your school. Check for free opportunities and discounts.
Beyond the Bell is in elementary schools and Club Beyond is in middle schools across Tacoma Public Schools, powered by community partners.
“Pay What You Choose”
Pay What You Choose” is flexible pricing that makes activities affordable for every student. When you register, you decide what you will pay between nothing at all and $150 for activities.
Every dollar you do pay goes back into the Beyond the Bell program, making activities affordable and accessible for everyone.
When you register for Beyond the Bell activities on the TPS Family App at https://family.tpsapps.org, you will be asked what you would like to pay for activities. This special launch pricing is for activities through the end of the 2021/2022 school year.
We look forward to seeing your student engaged in high quality Beyond the Bell experiences at their school.
