Clubs and Activities
St. Louis Catholic School offers a wide variety of clubs and activities for students that meet both during and after school. Please see our Athletics page for our sports schedule.
National Junior Honor Society - Students in grades 7 and 8 are invited to join this academic group. Students must earn top grades and show good character, citizenship, service, and leadership. The group does several service activities during the school year and may go on enrichment outings.
Student Council - Students from each homeroom elect class representatives and members for Team Council to represent the student body. Major events include the Spooktacular costume drive, Red Ribbon Week, the Gobble Up Food Drive, and Pop Tab Wars for the Ronald McDonald House.
Peer Mediation - Select seventh and eighth graders meet with younger students weekly to be a “big brother/sister”. They meet to talk through bullying, friend issues, or life in general. Our goal is that younger students have a safe, trusted mentor to guide them through circumstances that come up throughout the school year. If you would like your child to meet with a Peer Mediator, please email Mrs. Brooks at email@example.com.
Academic Team - This team is for 7th and 8th grade students that are interested in general knowledge questions and competing to show their multitude of knowledge. There is one match a year at LaSalle HS in the spring. We start practicing in January. Mrs. Flaspohler and Mrs. Jones firstname.lastname@example.org are the coaches.
Choir- All students in grades 5-8 are invited to join our school choir. We rehearse two mornings a week, from 7:30-7:50. Students sing at the school Masses, two concerts, the live nativity at St. Anthony’s, and various other events, depending on the school year. Students sing a variety of music, including both sacred and secular pieces. Choir members are the cantors for the school Masses if they wish to. Contact Mrs. Pederson at email@example.com if you are interested in learning more about choir.
Band - Students in grades 5-8 are invited to join our school band. We have two levels, beginners and advanced. Beginners truly start from taking the instrument out of the case and making the first sound! Advanced students have played at least one year prior. We perform two concerts a year. Contact Mrs. Pederson at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in learning more about band.
Musical Cast - All junior high students participate in the junior high musical. The after school cast is for students who want to do more than their grade level song and dance. These students prepare the remainder of the songs, different character parts, and additional choreography as needed. Auditions are typically in January, with rehearsals happening after school beginning in February. Contact Mrs. Pederson at email@example.com if you are interested in learning more about the musical.
Speech Team - This team is for 5th and 6th grade students that are interested in public speaking. Students memorize and perform a speech in 1 of 3 categories (humorous, serious, or duet). They compete once a year at Oldenburg Academy. Practice begins in September. Mrs. Laker (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Mrs. Pedersen (email@example.com) are the coaches.
Robotics Team - The Robotics Team currently consists of seven teacher recommended students in grades 3-6. The students meet once a week from after fall break into early February to practice for competitions using the VEX robot. We travel to area schools about once a week for smaller competitions and usually attend one large competition each year. Contact Miss McKee (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mrs. Hollins (email@example.com) for more information.
Archery Club - Archery Club is new to SLS. This is open to any student in grades 4-8. They hold practice once a week and compete in weekend tournaments throughout the school year. They also have the chance to qualify for state every year.
