Athletics and Extra-Curricular Activities in Grade 7 & 8 at St. Michael
There are a variety of sports teams at St. Michael in Grade 7/8s. Most sports have tryouts, and we often have both an A and B team, so as many students as possible can make the team.
Cross Country is our first sport of the year and all students who come out for practices can participate in this sport.
We also have: soccer, football (flag and/or touch), volleyball, basketball, hockey, track and field and sometimes baseball.
Athletics are a fun way to work as a team outside of the classroom and to get to know some other students who aren’t in your class.
Here at St. Michael we offer numerous extra-curricular activities for our Grade 7 & 8s. These extra-curricular activities give students time to build relationships with others in the school and build skills outside the traditional classroom!
Some of our extra-curricular activities are:
At St. Mike’s, we have a Grade 7 and 8 student council who are in charge of organizing events throughout the school year. The students meet during lunch time and plan activities to build school spirit such as: dances, summer Olympics, door decorating contests and more! One or two representatives from each homeroom are elected at the beginning of the school year.
Junior band is for everyone who enjoys and appreciates music. The high school music teacher Mrs. Kowlessar and her senior mentors are always happy to teach and practice with the new members, demonstrating how to appreciate an instrument. By joining the Junior Band, you are given the opportunity to participate in several concerts, and band trips. Junior band is all about friendship, teamwork, and working together to produce beautiful music.
At St Mike’s we celebrate Mass or a liturgy of the Word about once per month. In order to make the celebrations more spirited, our Mass Band leads us in song. Mass Band members meet at lunch each week to select and practice songs. No music background is necessary to join!
