School Clubs

There are several school clubs that students can become involved with. There are three important reasons why students are encouraged to be active members in one or more school activities:

  1. The life of the school is dependent on the people who are members of the school. When students contribute to the school community, the school becomes a stronger and more vibrant place - a place where learning and growing happens in many ways and not just within the classroom walls.

  2. Being involved in a school club promotes teamwork and interpersonal skills. Developing and enhancing these skills while still in junior/senior high is a critical step in fostering good citizenship and preparing for the future.

  3. Most scholarship applications have a community service component. By being involved in the school clubs, students will have examples to include in the community service portion of their applications.

So ... be an active member of your school community!

 

STUDENTS' UNION

This group of students take responsibility for organizing a variety of spirit activities to involve as many students as possible. They take on a leadership role in the planning and hosting of these events. Events include school dances, spirit days, as well as special events like Halloween, Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day. The members meet weekly during lunch to brainstorm and plan for the various activities. This is a fun group of people to be part of and you get a chance to really be involved in many different events. Come and join us!

 

YOUTH LITURGICAL LEADERSHIP

YLL is a group for students interested in helping to plan, lead, and participate in whole school faith development. We run monthly celebrations, either a Mass or a Liturgy, and seasonal events in Advent and Lent. On four days throughout the school year we meet for half a day with the YLL groups from the other schools in Lakeland Catholic in order to develop skills, knowledge, and support to carry out this leadership role. While our celebrations and activities must be of a Catholic nature, YLL welcomes all students interested in leading faith development in our school. Please see Mrs. Seguin for more information.

 

ADOPT A VILLAGE

Adopt a Village is a program run by Free the Children. Its purpose is to create a functioning village in developing countries by building schools, putting in wells and buying livestock, so that a village can become self-sustaining. Free the Children wants people to understand that it is not about charity or handouts, but about creating sustainability for all.

At Assumption School our goal is to raise $8,000 to build a school. We plan to accomplish this through many different fundraisers during the year. We are currently collecting the drink containers in the school and putting the recycling money towards our goal. Adopt a Village is open to all grades and always welcomes new members. We meet every Thursday in Mr. Belsher’s room. Remember that youth can make a difference. All we have to do is get involved and care, and that is what Adopt a Village is all about.

 

YEARBOOK

Yearbook is a group of students, and a teacher Advisor that work together to capture the memories of high school into one book. Students are needed to take photos, to build and to edit pages. Anyone is able to join this school club, talk to Ms. Gogan, Ms. Lepage or Ms. St. Jean if you're interested in helping.

 

AXIS AND ALLIES

Axis and Allies club is a group of strategy—minded individuals from grade 7-12 who meet at lunches and once a month on Saturdays or Family Fridays to play strategy board games such as Axis and Allies, Risk, Magic, Fortress America and Attack!. We often have multiple games going on at any given time so everyone is welcome. Not sure how to play? No worries – come and watch then some of the senior players will help mentor you. The Axis and Allies club is located in Mr. Belsher’s classroom.
