We offer the following extra-curricular activities to our students:
Under the direction of our art teacher, Mrs. Weaver, students can extend their love of art by joining our Art Club. The Art Club meets on the third Wednesday of each month. Transportation home at 3:30 pm and a permission sheet from Mrs. Weaver are required to attend plus a minimal supply fee for the coverage of project materials.
Join us and help design our annual yearbook. The Yearbook Club meets the first Wednesday during the months of January, February and March after school until 3:00 pm. Fifth and sixth grade students are welcome to join. The students help in drawing graphics, identify students in pictures, and assist in the layout of our yearbook. Mrs. Weaver and Mrs. Zeller are the advisors. Transportation home at 3:00 pm and a permission sheet are required to attend.
Catholic Academy each year has a Christmas Program and Spring Musical. Our Christmas Program consists of a play and music sung by our Kindergarten, First, Second, and Third grade students. The Christmas play is a big event which includes many people participating in the production. Only students in grades Fourth through Sixth can tryout for the play. Our art department creates the stage props and backgrounds. The stage crew helps with the audio, lights, and arranging the props. A lot of hard work is put into our production with many afternoons and after school practice beforehand. Many people come to watch and enjoy the play.
Each of our classrooms is paired off with another classroom to help in reading, writing, mentoring, role models, friendship. This is done on a monthly basis during the school day. This year, Kindergarten is paired with our third grade, first grade with fourth grade, second grade with fifth grade, and preK-4 with the sixth graders.
Each year, individuals from the St. Vincent de Paul Parish community pair up with our fourth grade students. The Church buddies assist the fourth graders in developing their faith by attending Mass with the students every week. As the students learn about the Bible and the scriptures, the Church Buddies model what it means to be an active member of the church. In addition to Mass, the fourth grade students get to know their Guardian Angel Church Buddies during holiday celebrations throughout the school year. At these gatherings, the students and Church Buddies share stories, play games, participate in activities, and enjoy refreshments/treats provided by the student's parents. The fourth graders always look forward to weekly Mass with their Church Buddies.
Before we begin each school day, our 7th and 8th students are in charge of morning announcements which also include the Pledge of Allegiance, morning prayer, and a patriotic song. Each classroom also has designated students who assist in paper recycling collections and function as class messengers.
