Clubs at St. Cecilia
Each and every one of our students have unique interests, talents, and goals. One of the ways that we harness those gifts is through specialized clubs. New clubs are always popping up, often encouraged by our determined faculty members. Students who wish to participate in activities outside the classroom may seek membership in one or more of the following organizations:
SCS 4H Club meets on the second Tuesday of each month. The SCS 4H Club is open to all 4th through 8th grade students. The members are responsible for collecting recycle materials at school each Tuesday. In January they collect old markers to be recycled. The SCS 4H Club is open to all 4th through 8th grade students. Besides recycling the club members have many opportunities to participate in fun activities which involve livestock, cooking, painting, leadership, and service.
The Beta Club at St. Cecilia School is a national academic service organization that recognizes students who demonstrate outstanding academic achievement and exemplify worthy character. Students must maintain a 3.0 GPA and earn A’s and B’s in conduct. Students in grades 4-5 are eligible to participate in Elementary Beta Club. Students in grades 6-8 are eligible to participate in Junior Beta Club. Throughout the year the clubs participate in a variety of service projects; including getting ready for our Pageant, cleaning up after the Broussard Community Fair, hosting school dances, and hosting the school’s annual Talent Show. Students are required to participate in club activities and personal service projects throughout the year. Club meetings are generally held once a month.
Junior Quiz Bowl consists of a six-member team of students who compete against area schools in an academic recall competition. Students in grades sixth through eighth are eligible to try out to participate in this year-round competition. A tournament is held at the end of the Spring Season to determine the champion out of all participating schools. Junior High Quiz Bowl is moderated by Mrs. Andrea Hebert and Mrs. Monique Terracina.
Welcome to the Math Club, an exciting opportunity for students in grades 6 to 8 to explore the fascinating world of mathematics alongside their peers. Our club meets 1-2 times per month, allowing students to delve into mathematical concepts individually and in collaborative group settings.
As part of our activities, we actively engage in the Mathcounts club and competition, as well as participate in various tournaments in the Lafayette area. These events provide a platform for students to showcase their mathematical prowess both individually and as part of dynamic teams.
In the 2022-2023 academic year, we made our mark by competing in tournaments at LCA and Northside, where we proudly secured 3rd place in sweepstakes at both venues. We also took on the challenges at Catholic High and the Mathcounts competition.
For the 2023-2024 academic year, we've already made a strong start by attending a math tournament at LCA and achieving an impressive 2nd place in the team sweepstakes. We eagerly anticipate further participation in tournaments throughout the Lafayette area and are excited to compete in the upcoming Mathcounts competition in the Spring. Join us on this thrilling mathematical journey!
All students in grade PreK-4th grade are invited to participate in the Running Club. Running Club is an opportunity for the children to exercise, build their endurance, and have fun with their friends. Running Club will be held after school on the playground on Monday and Thursday from 3:00 until 4:00. The students will do some warm-up exercises and stretches, and then they will run/walk. At the end of each session, we will record the number of laps they completed.
Students who are interested in deepening their faith in a fun and communal setting enjoy the Youth Ministry program at St. Cecilia. Our older students lead their groups in activities, discussions, and games. This helps to form leaders, and mentourships, and increases community within different grade levels at our school. Students in the Ministry program perform in a Live Nativity every December.
