Poquoson Elementary offers a variety of extra curricular activities. Students are selected for most of the activities through an interest lottery or tryouts (depending on the club). Students are required to obtain their own transportation home as busses are not provided. Students from all grades have the opportunity to turn in interest forms in the fall of each year.
