Clubs & Activities

Co-curricular activities are provided by STM to appeal to the interests and needs of the student body. Each student is encouraged to participate in these activities for his/her own enjoyment and development.

These after-school activities are numerous and varied. Organizations and clubs include participation in academic activities and projects, fine arts areas, literary work, community service projects, and school spirit. The school encourages its students to participate in at least one co-curricular activity. To become a member of any organization, a student must contact the moderator of that group. Each officer and member is committed to abide by the guidelines and policies for clubs and organizations.

What is Quiz Bowl?

In Quiz Bowl, questions are asked, and the players press their buzzers when they know the answer. The first player to buzz in answers the question after his name is called.

What are the membership requirements?

Membership is open to all grade levels. Practice is held after school for team members to compete against each other.
