Clubs & Organizations
8th Grade Class
The 8th grade visits Catholic High Schools during the fall, they organize and run the school’s field day, and are in charge of bringing food to needy families during Thanksgiving and Christmas. They participate in various activities to promote a sense of unity and to raise money for their graduation and 8th grade trip. Each graduating class selects class colors, a class song, a class flower, and a class T-shirt. They take a three-day, two-night trip to San Antonio and celebrate graduation with breakfast, a Church ceremony, and afterward a dance.
Cheerleaders learn the fundamentals of cheer, dance, tumbling, and stunting at summer camp. Cheerleaders prepare Pep Rallies, banners, and spirit sticks to encourage school spirit for the football, volleyball, basketball, baseball, and softball sports programs, as well as other student organizations.
Children in grades 2nd through 8th may participate in choir. The choir performs liturgical songs at the weekly masses, as well as visits elderly people in area assisted living homes to perform for them.
