Enrichment Programs

Student Council

Student Council provides the ideal opportunity for our youth to discuss relevant issues, to work together for a common cause, and to contribute to the betterment of their school.  Officers are elected each fall and students meet monthly to discuss and vote on issues and fundraising ideas.  This group was able to raise enough last year to provide several hundred dollars of scholarships to our 8th grade students.

The Jagwire Student Newspaper

Aspiring writers become roving reporters while contributing articles to our student newspaper, The Jag Wire.  This student magazine features interviews, jokes, school events, and debates and is overseen by staff and parent volunteers.

Boy Scouts & Girl Scouts

Scouting plays a big part in supporting our students as they grow in character and independence.

In last year's 8th grade class, nine young women in the class earned the religious Marion Award, marking not only their commitment to scouting but to their faith development as well.  Our Cub Scouts are an active pack and many boys choose to continue on with Boy Scouts in the middle grades.

Student Buddy Program

In grades kindergarten, first, and second, younger students are paired with Pals, older students who help them, complete special projects with them, and guide them while participating in weekly worship services.  It's not uncommon to spot junior high boys instructing a first grader in how to throw a better spiral or to hear a fifth grader urge a kindergarten child to take a few more bites of lunch.
