Draper Park Middle School’s intramural program aims to provide opportunities for middle school students to participate in school-sponsored healthy-lifestyle activities, engage in school, meet new friends, learn about fair play, increase leadership and teamwork skills, and have fun.
We sponsor four intramural sports/activities: basketball, chess, cross country, and soccer.
All students are welcome to participate in cross-country activities at the school level. Days and times of cross-country practices will be announced at an informational meeting in the Library/Media Center on Thursday, August 22, 2019, at 2:45 p.m.
