Extracurricular Activities

Student Leadership
Students in fifth through eighth grade are invited to run for positions in Student Leadership. Our student leaders plan and lead Faith-Filled Friday assemblies, organize special school events, like all school bingo, junior high dance, and school fundraisers.

Beginning in fourth grade, our students have the opportunity to participate in choir. The choir meets once a week after school for practice, and they sing at select school masses, as well as Family Masses on Sundays and other special events such as the National Anthem at local college sporting events.

Quiz Bowl
Through our school’s enrichment program, junior high students can be a part of the SJS Quiz Bowl Team. The Quiz Bowl Team meets in the fall and prepares for quiz bowl competitions with other grade schools that are sponsored by local high schools.
