We will be posting the answers to common questions as we receive them.


Have I missed an e-mail about Spring Clubs?

No, you have not missed any e-mails. While school is out for summer break it is difficult for RSI to reach out to parents. Communication regarding the new Rilke Clubs program is forthcoming. The preliminary club list and descriptions have been posted on the Clubs-Parent tab.  Registration should be open by November 26th at 7 am. 


How do I propose a new club?

There is an application form on under the Clubs tab on the Employment page. As part of the application, a description of the proposed club is required, along with scheduling preferences and hours the club will be offered. We are currently recruiting club instructors for the 2018-2019 school year.


Do we have to register quarterly?

Under the new operations, registration will be quarterly and payments will be monthly in order to reduce administrative work and the financial burden on parents.


What do I do if my child is on the cross country running team and wants to be part of a club offered at the same time?

Please register your child for any clubs that they will want to attend after cross-country running is over for the season. Then contact Rilke Clubs at rilkeclubs@rilkeschuleinc.org for a credit for the overlapping time with the running team. Additionally, Herr Horner is ok with students missing one practice a week to participate in clubs like orchestra or band, where the students need to participate throughout the semester in order to keep up. Please check with Herr Horner and the club provider, to see how missing a practice may impact racing eligibility.

Do I have to pay for Lexia Club?

No, you do not have to pay for Lexia Club or the math equivalent. If your child is invited after the start of the school year to either of those clubs and they coincide with a club to which you have registered, please contact rilkeclubs@rilkeschuleinc.org, so that a prorated credit can be generated. Lexia Club is a free service required by the Anchorage School District and families will not be charged for the time their child spends in that club or the math equivalent.
