St. Al’s offers a variety of extracurricular activities designed to further develop each child by offering the opportunity to explore enriching activities within a fun and values-based environment.
Band: Grades 4-8
St. Al’s offers elective band lessons during classroom hours in collaboration with the Totino-Grace Fine Arts Academy. Band students receive weekly instrument lessons, participate in band rehearsals, and perform in the Christmas Concert and Spring Program. Students buy their own instruments. Discounts and used instruments are available. If you’re interested, please email Mr. Tim Hoffman at email@example.com.
Student Council: Grades 5-8
Student Council is made up of elected members from each grade. Meetings are held once a week, and elected officers and representatives must be able to attend meetings. Officers and members also serve on various community committees, school committees and task forces. Student Council-sponsored activities include fundraisers for charitable organizations and student social activities.
Middle School Class Trip: Grades 6-8
Every other year on the odd-numbered years, middle school students have an opportunity to visit Washington D.C. to learn about our country’s history and how our nation’s foundation was built on a strong faith in God. Some of the sites they visit include famous monuments and memorials, National Archives, White House, United States Capital, Library of Congress, Smithsonian Museums, Arlington National Cemetery, Mount Vernon, Ford’s Theater, and the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. This four-day tour is coordinated through American Christian Tours. Information about the middle school trip will be shared with students. For more information, please contact Ms. Rebecca Buller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yearbook: Grades 7 & 8
Students have the opportunity to help with the layout of the school yearbook under the guidance of teacher advisory staff. Students work together to create collage photo pages, class pages, and an “Eighth Grade through the Years” page. Students are also involved in editing. Those wanting to participate in development of the yearbook will need to attend meetings either before or after school.
